Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller says an Albany man drowned in the North Santiam River.
According to Mueller, a dive team found Steven Brunson's body Wednesday night about 50 feet from a boat ramp near Scio.
Medics tried to resuscitate the 53-year-old man who had gone to the area with his wife but was swimming alone when he went under.
Mueller says alcohol was a contributing factor in the drowning and foul play is not suspected.
Brunson's body was taken to Fisher Funeral Home in Albany.
