PORTLAND, Ore. ( KOIN ) — The body of a 19-year-old was recovered from the Columbia River last week after he was last seen getting swept under the Bridge of the Gods near Cascade Locks, authorities tell KOIN 6 News.
The body of the teen, who has not been identified by authorities, was found by a Yakama Fish and Game marine patrol on Thursday around 1 p.m., according to Mitchell Hicks, the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Police Department’s chief of police.
“Waters of the Pacific Northwest are still very cold despite the summer like air temperatures and streams and rivers are high with strong currents,” Hicks said in an email to KOIN. “Be safe this holiday weekend.”
