BELOIT—Beloit Police confirmed officers have recovered a body in the Rock River Tuesday evening.   

An employee at the Beloit police precinct confirmed officers recovered a body that was floating in the water on the river near a former power and light substation, next to the dam south of Portland Avenue and Highway 51.
