Chief Deputy Bruce Paulsen, of the Mills County Sheriff’s Office, said a camper found the body about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday in the river at Lincoln’s Landing campground. That’s near the U.S. Highway 34 bridge that connects Mills County to Plattsmouth, Nebraska.

Paulsen says the body had some clothing and indentifying markings, such as tattoos, but he wouldn’t be specific.

He says the sheriff’s office hasn’t received recent reports of a missing man upriver.

The body was taken to the Douglas County Coroner’s Office in Omaha for an autopsy.
