UPDATE (9:30): The body was found near the Red River South Marina in south Bossier Parish off Highway 71.  Investigators don't have an exact age, but say the victim is a young man... and they do not believe he is from Bossier Parish.

UPDATE (8:45): The coroner tells NBC 6 News the body found is that of a black male with no signs of trauma.  It looks as though the body has been in the water for one or two days.

The two fishermen spotted the body around 6:10 pm.

ORIGINAL STORY:  Bossier officials have confirmed to NBC 6 that a body has been found in the Red River by two fishermen.

It has not been determined if it is male or female.  The coroner is on the scene.  We also have a crew on the scene and will bring you more information as it becomes available.
