Police this morning recovered the body of a woman from the waters of the Farmington River.  The body was discovered in the waters of the river about three miles downstream from where 33-year old Rachel Greene of New Hartford was reported missing early last Saturday morning.

A woman walking her dog reported seeing the body to Canton Police at around 9:30 this morning.  Canton Police and Fire and two EnCon officers who were searching nearby responded immediately, joined by State Police and a search and rescue team from UConn.  Authorities were unable to identify the body at the scene and it will be transported to the chief Medical Examiners Office for a positive identification.

Ms. Greene had been reported missing after coming out of a raft while on the river in the early morning hours last Saturday.  A man in the raft with her and two other men in a second raft with them all made it out safely.

EnCon Police have led an extensive search for Ms. Green all week long.
