GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. -- Authorities say the body of a woman has been pulled from the Colorado River at Grand Canyon National Park.

Park officials say people on a private river trip reported seeing the body in the water near Tuckup Canyon late Thursday afternoon.

Due to pending darkness, park rangers weren't able to fly to the scene until Friday morning.

The body was transported to the rim by helicopter and then to the Coconino County Medical Examiner's Office.

Park officials say the woman's name is being withheld pending positive identification and notification of her family.

A Colorado woman had been reported missing from a private rafting trip at the Grand Canyon in January. Kaitlin Anne Kenney, of Englewood, last was seen 30 river miles from where the unidentified woman's body was recovered Friday.
