IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Iowa City Police Department says man reported missing in May was found dead just days after the report.

Officers were called to Waterworks Prairie Park at 2875 North Dubuque Street and around 8:12 a.m. on May 26 for a report of a possible suicidal person.

Officers determined that 45-year-old Jeffrey Alan Sterba had gotten out of his vehicle at the park carrying a rope and threatening to hang himself.

Police searched the area with a K-9 officer and launched a rescue boat into the river, but Sterba was not found.

Sergeant Scott Gaarde says Sterba's body was found on May 28.

No other details were provided.
