(HENRICO COUNTY, Va.) -- Henrico Police are now in the preliminary stages of a death investigation. 

First responders have found the body of a woman in the James River. They have recovered the body and Henrico's criminal investigative team will partner with the Medical Examiner's office to confirm the identity.

Detectives will then work to notify the legal next-of-kin. 

First responders have left the Huguenot Bridge. There was an increased presence earlier Wednesday after the initial report of an SUV was observed parked along the center of the Huguenot Bridge on Tuesday night. 

Anyone who may have seen anything last night around 10:50 p.m. along the Huguenot Bridge is asked to call police at 501-5000.
