A body pulled Saturday night from the Mississippi River near Grey Cloud Island has been identified as that of a New Hope man who has been missing since late February.
Authorities on Monday said the body was that of 22-year-old Adam Alexander Clark. The Washington County Sheriff's Office is investigating the cause of death.
According to a GoFundMe page set up to cover family expenses, Clark was last seen on February 28. His vehicle was found in south Minneapolis near Minnehaha Falls and the Ford Parkway bridge over the Mississippi.
Family members said Clark needed daily medication, and that it was possible he had gone to Colorado.
According to media reports, a tugboat operator found Clark's body in the river shortly before 9:30 p.m. Saturday, near river mile 827 between Grey Cloud Island Township and Inver Grove Heights.
The body was released to the Ramsey County medical examiner's office for identification.
