FALL CITY, Wash. (AP) -- The King County sheriff's office says a body has been found in the Snoqualmie River near where a 29-year-old Bothell, Wash., man vanished on Sunday while trying to rescue his dog.

Sgt. John Urquhart said the body was spotted Wednesday afternoon by people in a boat. Sheriff's divers recovered it about 50 feet from shore. There was no immediate confirmation of identity.

Lindsay Grennan has said that she and her fiance, Johnny Sharrar, threw a stick in the water Sunday for their dog to chase. When the dog got caught in the strong current, they both jumped in to save the animal.

Sharrar was carried away by the water. Grennan was rescued. The dog managed to get out safely.
