Park County law enforcement pull body from Shields River

Park County law enforcement pulled a body from the Shields River this morning.

Park County Police confirm the body is a 74-year-old Texas man who had been missing since Wednesday evening.

Herbst says last night they received a call at 9:43 pm of a 74-year-old Texas man reported missing from his house.

Deputies initiated a search and rescue.

This included the Livingston Police Department Canine Operations and a U.S. Air Force helicopter from Malmstrom Air Force Base, which used an infrared camera to try and find the man but was unsuccessful.

"About 5:55 this morning, ground teams found the individual deceased in the river. They're still working on that part of the investigation as far as the death," said Park County Undersheriff Clay Herbst. 

Herbst tells KULR-8 at this time they're not releasing the name of the individual until the family is notified.
