ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) _ Atchison authorities confirmed that a truck pulled from the Missouri River belonged to an Atchison man Gary C. Sandy. Authorities have also canceled the Silver Alert originally issued January 10th by the Atchison Kansas Police Department because the body found in the truck has been identified as Sandy.
The truck was spotted Sunday afternoon by a walker along the riverfront near downtown Atchison.
Officials had to fight high winds and strong currents while pulling the 2005 Dodge Ram from the river.
KAIR reports Sandy's family was at the scene and thanked everyone who had worked to find him, and to recover the truck
