SPARKS, NV - Sparks police were dispatched to Fisherman's Park Monday morning on a report of a dead woman.

The body was found by workers of the Truckee Meadows Water Authority in a fenced off area between the river and the park. Through the initial investigation, it is believed that the female traveled an undetermined distance down the river and was diverted into a flume, where the screen extricated her out of the water and onto land.

The woman was 69 years old and from Reno, though her name hasn't been released. How she got into the river is unknown at this time. It does appear that she was in the water less than 12 hours.

Anyone who may know anything about this incident, or saw anything, is asked to call the Sparks Police Department at 353-2225.
