A body was found this evening in the Mokelumne River near Isleton in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said.

Jason Ramos, spokesman for the department, said deputies were called to the scene about 5:40 p.m. and found an adult female's body in the river. Officials from River Delta Fire District were also called to the scene, he said.

He said the body was found "along the shore, in the water, bumping up against the shore with the tide."

Ramos said "it looked like she'd been in the water for some time."

The body was found near Brannan Island Road, south of Highway 12, he said.
