GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, AZ (CBS5) -

A woman's body has been found in the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.

The National Park Service said people on a private river trip discovered the body near Tuckup Canyon on Thursday afternoon.

Officials said they were unable to fly to the scene Thursday because it was getting dark. Friday morning rangers flew to the scene and the body was taken by helicopter to the Coconino County Medical Examiner.

The woman's name is being withheld until the family is notified.
