RICHMOND, Vt. -  
A body has been recovered from a popular swimming hole in Richmond.

Multiple crews responded to the Huntington Gorge around 3:30 Sunday afternoon after police say a witness spotted a shirt, and what appeared to be hair, stuck under branches in the water.

Members of Colchester Technical Rescue and Stowe Mountain Rescue repelled down the rocks to the water where the shirt was spotted. 

The body was removed from the water Sunday evening.  She is described as a white woman in her mid 30's to late 40's.  Police are still working to identify her.  At this time, we do not know how the victim ended up in they water.

Police also say there was a yellow car located nearby, but we do not know it that is connected to the incident.  The Huntington Gorge is a popular swimming spot, but it's also extremely deadly.  More than 20 people have drowned there since 1950.
