Recovery efforts are underway to retrieve human remains located at the bottom of the Royal Gorge.

Canon City police were called to the park Saturday night after park rangers discovered an abandoned car in the parking lot. The car was determined to be out of the Denver area, but nothing more was found at that time.

Authorities returned to the Royal Gorge Bridge at 5:30 a.m. Sunday and located a body at the bottom of the Gorge. Police, Fremont County Search and Rescue, and the county coroner's office are currently working to recover the body.

At this time, no other information is available. The deceased will not be identified until next-of-kin is notified.

11 News has placed a call to the park, which says it is open Sunday.
