A Delta Air Lines' spokeswoman said a body was found in the wheel well of a flight from Africa when it landed Friday at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The body was found around 8:50 a.m.

Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton said the flight had left Dakar, Senegal, more than nine hours before the stowaway was found.

No additional details are available pending an investigation by federal and local law enforcement.
