The Kearney Police Department is investigating the discovery of a body in a city creek.
Officers were called Thursday morning to the north channel of the Platte River, also known as Turkey Creek, after kayakers came across a body in the water.
The area of the creek is just east of Central Avenue along Landon Street, according to a news release from the police department.
The Kearney Fire Department’s dive team recovered the body.
An autopsy is being performed today to determine the cause of death and the identity of the victim.
