The search is officially over for a Frazeysburg man who was feared drowned after tubing on the Muskingum River last Saturday. The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office reports the body of 41-year-old Troy Hindel was discovered in a brush pile in the river about a half mile north of Terrace Shores. The Falls Township fire department was called to the scene around 10:00 Tuesday morning after the body was discovered. Hindel was tubing in the river with a group of friends Saturday when he apparently slipped into the river and drowned.
