Divers recovered the body of a man between the ages of 20 and 25 from the river Monday afternoon.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.
Philbin had traveled from his home in Ripon to Oshkosh to meet friends, Nichols said. They went out together in the campus area Saturday evening but when the group decided to move on to another establishment Michael Philbin apparently chose to stay behind, he said.
Sheriff’s deputies said they pulled the body of a young man between the ages of 20 and 25 out of the Fox River in Oshkosh on Monday afternoon, but they had not confirmed his identity.
Philbin made a cellphone call to one of his friends at 2 a.m. but didn’t say where he was, Nichols said. Philbin didn’t sound as if he was under duress or suffering from any medical issues and the call ended amicably, Nichols said.
But he never returned to get his car on Sunday and never tried to contact anyone, prompting the call to police, Nichols said.
Investigators have checked video surveillance from campus-area establishments, contacted the county jail and area hospitals in hopes of locating him, but so far they’ve turned up nothing. Attempts to track his cellphone were unsuccessful and police in Ripon, about 20 miles away, turned up nothing when they went to his home, Nichols said.
The sheriff's department said it got a call at 2:37 a.m. Sunday from a security guard at a business along the Fox River. The guard reported he had seen a man out on the ice calling for help, but the man had disappeared. Divers recovered the man’s body around 3 p.m. Monday.
The disappearance comes as the Packers prepare for Sunday’s home playoff game against the New York Giants.View Entire Story
