Missing Man's Body Found Near New Town

Posted: Updated:
The body of a missing New Town man has been recovered. Daniel Mossett, 31, had been missing since November. His body was discovered Monday in Lake Sakakawea near the 4 Bears Marina.

The sun is shinning as people are out fishing and boating along Lake Sakakawea. On Monday morning, it was a different story.

A fisherman went inside this tackle shop just to buy some bait that's when he noticed a body floating along Lake Sakakwea and called authorities.

The New Town Fire Department along with the Three Affiliated Tribes Police and other local law enforcement agencies, responded to the 4 Bears Marina.

When they arrived on the scene, a boat was put into the water at the Marina boat ramp and was used to float the body to shore, which took about an hour. Tribal Police say there are no signs of foul play.

The investigation has been turned over to the Three Affiliated Tribes Police Department and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Tribal police say there are no signs of foul play.
