SPOKANE-- A dead man was found almost completely submerged in the Spokane River Sunday afternoon.

The man’s alleged girlfriend said he told her I love you and goodbye Friday night and left to walk on the trail near the Spokane River. He did not return home.

The woman went to the trail today to look for him, saw a body floating in the water and called police. She found him in the same area of Riverton where Sharlotte McGill was stabbed last month, but police say these cases are not related.

Officers have not identified the man but say he is in his forties.

Police said there do not appear to be signs of foul play, but they are not calling it a suicide.
