Authorities recovered a body from the Cuyahoga River on Saturday, a spokeswoman for the Cleveland Division of Police confirmed to News 5. 

The U.S. Coast Guard, and local police and fire dive teams, spent much of the day in the water near West 3rd Street and Canal Road searching for a 59-year-old fisherman who possibly fell into the river.

On Monday, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed the victim as Reginald Green, 59, of Cleveland.

Green's body was found in the vicinity of 2201 West 3rd Street on Saturday.

First responders were called to the river around 2 a.m. Search efforts were suspended at 3:30 a.m. due to "safety considerations" and resumed around 8 a.m.

The incident is still under investigation.
