A young woman whose body was pulled from the Spokane River downtown early Tuesday morning was reported missing earlier this week by friends and family.

Sunquaria B. Noble, 17, was discovered by Avista Utilities workers at around 7 a.m. in the Lower Falls Dam near Huntington Park, just west of the Washington Water Power building on Post Street.

Noble’s cause and manner of death are both pending, the Spokane County Medical Examiner said Friday.

Police said Noble’s body was pulled from the river in a contraption that normally catches debris before it heads over the falls.

On Tuesday – the same day Noble’s body was discovered – family and friends reported her missing on Facebook. She was last seen, according to online posts, Saturday at around 8 p.m.
