A body was recovered from the Petaluma River Thursday afternoon.

A boater spotted the body in the water around 4 p.m., somewhere between the Highway 101 bridge over the Petaluma River and Gilardi's Lakeville Marina, according to Sonoma County sheriff's officials.

Firefighters from the Lakeville Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene, and later turned the matter over to the county Coroner's Office.

No additional information was available Thursday night.
