A missing persons search ended last week when a body was found at a local State Park. According to information from the Washington County Safety Center, 47 year old Jeffrey Scott Knerr of Washington was found dead Friday after an early morning search at Lake Darling State Park.
The initial search on Thursday was prompted by a note found in a suspicious vehicle at the park. The incident is still under investigation and foul play is not suspected.
Personnel from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Washington Police Department, Brighton Fire Department, Brighton First Responders and the Iowa DNR assisted with the incident.
