Austin

A body was found underwater at Twin Falls in the Barton Creek Greenbelt Sunday morning, said the Austin Fire Department.

In a tweet just before 10:40 a.m. Sunday, AFD said someone reported seeing the body underwater in that area. They said crews were working to access the Twin Falls on Barton Creek in southwest Austin.

The Austin Police Department shut down the entrance to Twin Falls while an APD dive team works to recover the body, an officer at the scene said.

At 2:20 p.m., officers at the scene said it would be at least another hour before the entrance to the falls would reopen.

This is a developing story. KXAN will update as details become available.
