GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A body was recovered from the Fox River Sunday afternoon. According to Green Bay Police, officers were called to the 500 block of Day Street in Green Bay shortly before 2:30 p.m.

Members of the Green Bay Metro Fire Department provided a boat to assist with the recovery. Police add the medical examiner also responded to the scene.

Police tell Action 2 News they don’t suspect foul play. They believe this is the person who jumped off the Ray Nitschke Bridge in late March, when we reported law enforcement agencies were looking for a person in the water.

Police weren’t able to immediately confirm if the person found was male or female.
