Missing man found dead in Lincoln

A Crab Orchard man who had been missing since late Tuesday or early Wednesday was found dead in Cedar Creek Lake Friday afternoon, said Lincoln County Deputy Coroner Tony Floro.

Tim Harker, 35, went out to walk his dog and never returned. He was found by a family member in a small body of water on the other side of the road from where authorities had been searching.

Floro said the death is being investigated as an accidental drowning.
