The vehicle was a 2016 white Dodge Ram 1500 that belonged to Jason Spencer, who has been missing since Nov. 9.

Spencer’s son reported him missing on Nov. 14 and said he left their house on Rebecca Lane, off of Fort Campbell Boulevard, on Nov. 9 at around 3 a.m., according to previous reports.

The vehicle was pulled out of the river at about 3:30 p.m. today.

“There is a deceased person inside the vehicle, and the family of Mr. Spencer has been notified of the situation, however, the body has not been positively identified,” Beaubien said.

The body will be transported to the medical examiner’s office, and the investigation is ongoing.

“There is no indication of foul play at this time,” Beaubien said.
