Body of missing central Nebraska man found at crash site

KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) — Authorities in central Nebraska say they have found the body of a man reported missing since Jan. 15.

Garden County authorities found the body of 48-year-old Eldie Cline on Tuesday when someone reported a vehicle crashed in a ravine. Officials say that the vehicle was owned by Cline and that Cline’s body was recovered at the scene.

Officials say it appeared that the vehicle left the road and came to rest in the ravine. An investigation into Cline’s death has been launched.

Authorities say Cline last contacted his wife sometime early Jan. 15 after he finished his shift at Union Pacific Railroad.
