OMAHA, Neb. --
Omaha Police said Thursday night that they had found the body of Avi Gurung, the 7-year-old who went missing at N.P. Dodge Park earlier in the week.
OPD Officer Phil Anson said, search crews had located and retrieved the body of Avi Gurung, from the Missouri River just under the Interstate 680 bridge.
He said deputies were in the process of ending their search when they were approached by a fisherman who said they may have seen an object that belonged to a child. A follow-up on that search led to the discovery of Avi’s body.
Anson offered sincere condolences to the family, who was present at N.P. Dodge Park on Thursday night when OPD made the announcement to the media.
Avi Gurung went missing Tuesday evening in the area of NP Dodge Park. Authorities say he was last seen on a sandbar near the Missouri River, until Thursday night when his body was found. No foul play is still suspected.
