Associated Press

The body found in Long Lake over the weekend appears to be missing Airman James Adam Ramsey Lassiter.

The missing Fairchild-based airman’s mother confirmed to KHQ TV that the body found has been identified by medical examiners as her son.

Lassiter, 25, disappeared March 31 when he attempted to canoe in the fast-moving Spokane River.

Fishermen found the body Sunday and Stevens County called Spokane County deputies to help with the investigation.
