LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - The Pulaski County Sheriff's Water Patrol Unit, in addition to Little Rock and North Little Rock Fire Departments responded to the Arkansas River for reports of a body in the water.  Authorities say the body is that of a Little Rock man who was reported missing on July 10.

The Sheriff's Office of Criminal Investigations Division began their death investigation shortly after the body was recovered from the river.  Authorities identified the body to be that of Marquis Taylor, 18.  

A pending police report indicates that Taylor sustained internal injuries, but no foul play is expected at this time.  The Sheriff's office says next of kin has been notified.  

Taylor's body has since been released from the Pulaski County Coroner's Office and is now at the Arkansas State Crime lab awaiting autopsy.
