BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Authorities in Boulder County are investigating after a body was found in Boulder Creek Tuesday evening.

According to Cmdr. Heidi Prentup with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, multiple agencies responded after a call came in about a body spotted in the creek near Valmont Road and 61st Street.

“The resident said they saw what they believed to be a body in Boulder Creek. The resident was not sure if it was human, or an animal,” Prentup said in a statement.

Authorities were able to confirm the body was that of a person who was deceased and the body has been recovered. It’s not clear if the body is that of a man or a woman.

The body of a man who went tubing, Chris Danko, 35, still hasn’t been found after he disappeared on the creek back in May.
