Eric Duffey - Earthly Body Located - March 05, 2012
The body of missing Wisconsin college student Eric Duffey has been found in the Wisconsin River after an exhaustive search involving 150 volunteers.
Duffey, 21, disappeared early on Saturday morning having been out celebrating his birthday with friends at Joe's Bar.
He was last seen at about 1.15 am leaving the bar and is thought to have been heading for his residence or that of his girlfriend.
Stevens Point Sgt. Dan Wheeler said officials removed Duffey’s body at around 1.10 pm this afternoon from the river, which goes through the city about 110 miles north of Madison.
The coroner's office made a positive identification after meeting with Duffey's family.
