The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office said a body has been found in water near the Guntersville Dam.
The body was found near Snow Point Road, said Steve Guthrie, office spokesman.
It was removed about 5 p.m.
Forensics next will conduct an autopsy.
Authorities will be checking boat launches Tuesday in search of unattended cars, hoping the investigation leads them to an identity for the body. Guthrie said there are not any missing people in Marshall County or in the surrounding area.
Guthrie said high water levels made recovery difficult, and there was concern the body would drift away or go back underwater.
It is unclear how long the autopsy will take, but Guthrie said it should be completed soon.
