Search for missing Rockford man turns up body in Crow River


As the search continued for a missing Rockford man, authorities recovered a body from the Crow River in Wright County around 6 p.m. Tuesday.

KARE 11 reports the body that has not yet been identified was found in the water among debris about a mile north of Highway 55. Authorities tell the Star Tribune that the body is that of a white man in his mid- to late-20s.

Samuel Gustafson, 26, was last seen leaving a friend's house in Rockford in the early morning hours of April 21. Family members say Gustafson suffers from schizophrenia and did not have medication with him.

The Midwest Medical Examiner's Office is expected to identify the man Wednesday.
