Sacramento Police and fire officials are working to recover the body of an unidentified man from the American River today.

An observer reported seeing the body floating near the area of Campus Commons Golf Course Friday morning, said Doug Morse, a spokesman for the Sacramento Police Department. Morse said it too soon to say how long the man has been in the river or whether police suspect foul play.
