Body found near Vermillion River in Hastings

A body was found along the Vermillion River in Hastings on Tuesday afternoon. The body was found near 10th and Progress streets by an outdoorsman who frequents the area.

The remains were recovered Wednesday by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Dakota County Special Operations Team.

On July 21, 2011, a woman was seen going over the Vermillion Falls, just upstream from where this body was located. Authorities are not saying yet if the remains found Tuesday belong to that woman.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.

The approximate location of the remains is included below.
