Discovered body not that of Zamlen

The Star Tribune has reported that a body discovered in debris in the Mississippi River was not the body of a missing student from the University of St. Thomas, police said.

The body, which was found to be female, was discovered by barge company employees on the intersection of Childs and Shepard Roads.

A woman who was seen jumping from a nearby bridge a few weeks ago matched the description of the discovered body, St. Paul police spokesman Peter Panos said.

Dan Zamlen, the missing St. Thomas freshman, is still being searched for by volunteers. Zamlen was said to have been at the intersection of Mississippi River Boulevard S. and St. Clair Avenue before his phone cut out. Police have searched for him by both boat and helicopter but have since stopped searching.

The medical examiner's office said it hopes to be able to have more information by Monday on the discovered body's identity, KARE-TV reported.
