ESTACADA, Ore. -- The body of a 6-year-old girl swept into the Clackamas River last week was recovered Saturday, deputies said.
Vinesa Snegur, of Portland, fell into the river about 30 miles east of Estacada on Sunday, Jan. 22. A volunteer located her body Saturday afternoon about four miles downstream, on the rocks of a shallow island.
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene and recovered her remains soon afterward.
"It is believed Vinesa’s body had been previously trapped underwater, further upstream, and was recently dislodged by the high water levels," said Sgt. James Rhodes of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

"She had been playing in the snow with her family when she fell into the frigid water and was swept downstream," Rhodes said last Sunday.
Crews searched for her from that night until the effort was suspended Tuesday. Water conditions had become too dangerous to send searchers into the river, Rhodes said.
Clackamas County Search and Rescue teams had planned to resume the search Sunday morning.
