A man found dead in the Arkansas River near La Junta has been identified as 29-year-old James Hawkins, from Las Animas, according to a Colorado Bureau of Investigation news release.

He was found Sunday near Colorado State Highways 109 and 50 after the Otero County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call about a dead man in the river, according to the release.

No suspects are being sought, and there is no danger to the public, according to the release. Both the Sheriff's Office and CBI are continuing to investigate.
