MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Fire Department pulled a body from the Milwaukee River after a short dive rescue operation.  Police have identified the deceased as 51-year-old Robert Silverman.

Initially many thought this might be the body of Nick Wilcox, the 24-year-old man who was last seen on New Year's Eve.

No cause of death has been determined, and the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office has yet to release a report.
