Body Of North Bend Man Found In Platte River

Posted: 06 December, 2012

SCHUYLER (AP) - The body of a North Bend man who disappeared while out hunting has been found in the Platte River. The Colfax County Attorney’s office says 68-year-old Leroy Bird was reported missing when he didn’t return home Tuesday night. His family says he had been at a cabin near the Platte River outside of Rogers. Searchers found Bird’s body in the river near an overturned boat Wednesday morning. His hunting dog and gun were found about a mile downstream. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says there have now been eight deaths on the state’s waterways this year.
