A man's body was pulled from a pond just north of downtown Minneapolis Wednesday afternoon, said Lisa Kiava, a spokesperson for the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office. The man's identity was not immediately available.

Kiava said friends of the man went looking for him Wednesday and found him floating in the pond at 250 Van White Memorial Blvd., a spot where the group sometimes hung out, said Kiava. They called police at 12:25 p.m.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's office recovered the body. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office will release his name after completing an autopsy.
