Moscow Mills, MO (KSDK) - A missing Moscow Mills man was found dead Friday morning in Lincoln County, not far from where rescue crews had been searching for him.
Deputies said Roger Dale Gaedike of O'Fallon, Missouri, left his home around 4:00 a.m. Wednesday to hunt for arrowheads along the Cuivre River. Family members said Gaedike was supposed to appear for a scheduled appointment at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, which he never showed up for.
The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office dispatched several ATVs and two helicopters and searched over five square miles for Gaedike.
Gaedike's body was located in the Cuivre River. Detectives have not determined just how he wound up in the river.
