The body of a 41-year-old man was pulled from the Kinnickinnic River near Barnacle Buds early Tuesday morning.

Milwaukee police say someone on a bike spotted the body near Kinnickinnic and Stewart and called in. They say there are no signs of trauma to the body.

Lindsay Jones lives in the area.

"I woke up and I heard sirens and they all stopped close to my condo," she says.

She looked out her window and saw firefighters, police and the dive team searching the river.

"At first they were all running around, I was assuming someone fell or jumped in the river, and then they were not in a hurry anymore," she said.

The Medical Examiner said an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
