Body found in river not that of missing student

The body, a woman's, was discovered tangled in debris at 8:30 a.m. by employees of a barge company near the intersection of Childs and Shepard Roads.

A body recovered from the Mississippi River Saturday morning in St. Paul isn't that of a missing University of St. Thomas student, police said.

The woman's body was discovered tangled in debris at 8:30 a.m. by employees of a barge company near the intersection of Childs and Shepard Roads.

St. Paul police spokesman Peter Panos said the body matches the description of a woman who was seen jumping from a nearby bridge a few weeks ago. The body appears to have been in the water for some time, and police will wait for a positive identification from the Ramsey County medical examiner.

Volunteers continued searching Saturday for Dan Zamlen, a St. Thomas freshman who disappeared one week ago after leaving a party early Sunday morning.

Zamlen, who turned 19 on Wednesday, was last believed to be at the intersection of Mississippi River Boulevard S. and St. Clair Avenue when his phone abruptly cut out, and he hasn't been seen since.

Police have searched the Mississippi River by boat and helicopter, while others searched the river bluffs with no sign of Zamlen. Police have stopped searching, but volunteers are still looking for him.
