(Scroll down for video) A teen who was looking to find a Pokemon in a river, was shocked to find a dead body floating in the water, according to police in Wyoming.

19-year-old Shayla Wiggins Riverton, said that she found the body of a male floating in the Wind River while playing Pokemon Go on her cellphone.

She immediately called the police who recovered the body from the water.

Wiggins told investigators that when she woke up on Friday morning, she decided to play Pokemon Go, a game that promotes players to collect as many Pokemons as they can.

The Pokemons were all over Riverton, and she was trying to reach a Pokemon that was in a natural water source.

Wiggins jumped the fence to get to the Wind River in search of a Pokemon. As she was walking towards the bridge along the shore, she saw something in the water.

It took a second for her to realize that it was a body. It was floating about three feet from the shore and looked like a medium sized male body.

She saw a black shirt and black pants. She immediately called 911, and officers came very quickly. Detectives believe that the body had been there for less than 24 hours.

Wiggins was very scared and cried for a while.
