Winnipeg police said Saturday foul play is not suspected after a body was found in the Red River near the Redwood Bridge.

Police said the body was that of a woman and investigators are in the process of identifying who she was. 
 
They are still investigating.

Police said earlier that a civilian called in the report around 9 a.m. Saturday. 

Police said the discovery of the woman's body is likely related to a missing person's report filed last week.

They said it's too early to say if the efforts by volunteers to drag the Red had anything to do with the body being discovered.

They are not releasing any further details.
