MESA, AZ - Maricopa County Sheriff's officials say a body was found Wednesday in the Salt River.
Sgt. Brandon Jones with MCSO said the body was found near Coon Bluff.
Jones said they are waiting for the medical examiner to confirm the identity.
Jones was not able to confirm if the body is that of Joshua Williams who went missing while tubing down the Salt River on Sunday.
Williams, 22, was with friends when he became separated from the group.
Searchers had been looking for Williams by air, land and in the water since Monday.
He was last seen near Old Sheep Bridge, roughly the center of the Lower Salt River recreation area in the Tonto National Forest.
