A body found floating Sunday morning near the Wanawish Dam in the Yakima River has been identified as a missing Grandview man.
Miguel Gomez, 31, had been missing since May 5 after his car was found abandoned near the Wine Country Bridge in Prosser.
A fisherman found Gomez’ body around 6:00 a.m. by the dam, which is near Richland, according to Prosser police. Gomez’ family believed he may have gone into the river on the day he went missing.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday to determine a cause of death.

Prosser Police Chief David Giles said there were no signs of foul play and police will know more when toxicology reports come back in four to six weeks.
