The Ada County Sheriff's Dive Team has been dispatched to the New York Canal in South Ada County after the discovery of a body in the water.

Canal workers called Ada County dispatchers shortly after 8 a.m., when they spotted a body in the water south of Cloverdale Road. Detectives say it appears to have been in the water for an extended period of time, making a preliminary identification impossible.
