Authorities have identified the body found Saturday in a metro river.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner says the remains of 28-year-old Anthony Baker were pulled from the Oklahoma River near Exchange Ave. over the weekend.

OKCFD was notified on Friday morning of a vehicle in the water. A dive team was dispatched but the vehicle was found empty.

Dive teams returned to the area periodically on Saturday. About 6:00 p.m. the body was located and divers were able to recover it about an hour later. The OKC police fatal accident investigation team was called to take over and complete the investigation into the death.

The investigation into Baker's death is still on-going.
