Body Recovery On Clearwater River A False Alarm

Nez Perce County deputies, while attempting to recover a body that was discovered in the Clearwater River just south of Lenore along Highway 12, discovered later it was a pile of floating debris.

The debris was spotted between a private campground and a sportsman’s access area and, unsuccessful in retrieving it, they had called for a boat to assist in the recovery when they determined it was not a body.
