Searchers Find Body in River near Ottumwa
OTTUMWA, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - Authorities say they have found the body of a missing swimmer in the Des Moines River near Ottumwa.
Thursday, searchers found the body of 25-year-old Michael Chrisman about a mile downstream from where he jumped into the water.
On Monday night, friends of Chrisman say he was swimming in the Des Moines River when he went under and never came up.
Since then, authorities from several departments have been using boats to try and find Chrisman.
They say the river has been running high in recent days because of the heavy rains.
