A body found recovered Tuesday from the Licking Riveris was confirmed Wednesday to be that of a missing Harrison County man.
Clinton O'Brien, 32, was reported missing last week. Harrison County Search and Rescue members recovered the body from near Robinson Dam about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday.
ReJeana Craft, chief of the county rescue squad, said searchers had been combing the nearby area for O'Brien since Sunday night.
She said O'Brien's car was found parked near the dam with the key in the ignition. The car had a flat tire, she said.

"That gave us reason to believe that he might be in the area," Craft said.
The body was found with the help of cadaver dogs, according to the Harrison County coroner's office.
There was no initial evidence of foul play, Coroner Tom Ware said.
