Searchers found the body of a Juneau man in the Herbert River Tuesday morning a day after he was reported missing, according to a release from the Alaska State Troopers.

James Reese did not report to work Monday and was reported missing. At about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, the Juneau Police Department found his vehicle parked at the Herbert Glacier Trailhead. A search by Juneau Mountain Rescue and SEADOGS discovered his body in the river below the glacier at about 9:30 a.m.

Resse’s body will be sent to the State Medical Examiner Office in Anchorage for an autopsy, the release states. There is no indication of foul play.
