Body Found In Hocking River ID'd As Missing Athens Man
Athens Police say a body found on Monday in the Hocking River has been identified as missing Athens resident Samuel Wiater.
The body of the 21-year-old was found around 1 p.m. yesterday by two local fisherman who had been in a canoe between the West State Street baseball fields and the Currier Street bike path.
Wiater was reported missing more than a month ago after his mother reported he was headed to the Hocking River.
On Monday, police said foul play was not suspected in the death.
