Search for missing Iowa swimmer

Posted: Updated:

ALBION, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities and volunteers are still looking for a missing Iowa swimmer after a weekend search in Marshall County was unsuccessful.

The family of 52-year-old Kevin Kroener reported him missing Saturday afternoon after he didn't return from a swim in the Iowa River. His vehicle was located in a remote area by the river near Albion.

Chief Deputy Steve Hoffman says about 30 volunteers and a K-9 unit searched for Kroener on Sunday. He says authorities focused on the area near a trestle bridge popular with local divers.

Authorities probed the river Sunday evening after he wasn't found on land. They will continue the search on Monday.
