Body of missing Seward man found, launching police investigation
Police in the community of Seward are investigating the death of a missing 21-year-old whose body was found.
A missing person bulletin from Seward Police Department said Preston Atwood said was reported missing last week.
The bulletin said Atwood has not been seen since Aug. 25, when he was said to have been at Fourth of July beach around 6 p.m.
He was reported to have been seen the afternoon of Aug. 27 at Two Lakes Park, near the entrance by First Lake, according to the police bulletin.
Police confirm Atwood's body has been found and they have begun an investigation, but declined to say what type of investigation.
The Seward Journal reports the police department would not comment on where the body was found or if foul play is suspected.
"The police department called off a search for Atwood Thursday evening and asked searchers to clear the woods in the southeast corner of the Seward Marine Industrial Center. Police ask that people keep clear of the area," the Aug. 30 article reads.
