Body of missing Yankton man found in Missouri River

YANKTON, SD — The body of a Yankton man who had been missing for more than a week was found Sunday in the Missouri River.

A boater called Yankton Dispatch at approximately 3:52 pm to report a body along the South Dakota shoreline about a quarter mile east of the mouth of the James River. The Yankton County Sheriff’s Office responded and recovered the body, which was identified as 22-year-old Phillip Snoozy.

The investigation into his disappearance remains open.

Snoozy was reported missing on May 24 when he was last seen swimming near the banks of the Nebraska River under the Meridian Bridge in Yankton.
