Muskingum County Detectives are investigating the possibility that a body found in the Muskingum River late Tuesday afternoon may be that of a missing Zanesville teen. According to the Morgan County Sheriff's office, they received a 9-1-1 call from a Stockport resident around 3:30 today reporting a body in the river. According to Morgan County, the body floated down the river and was lodged in the debris of a riverbank. The Sheriff's office says there are no signs of foul play and the body appears to have been in the water for a few days. The body is a white male with black hair.
