Body found during search of park near Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE (AP) — A county park near Fort Wayne was closed for hours for a search that ended when crews found a person's body on the property.

The search began Sunday at Fox Island County Park and Nature Preserve after a woman's car was found in a parking lot of the park just southwest of the city.

Allen County sheriff's spokesman Jeremy Tinkel tells WANE-TV that the woman had last been seen Thursday. Tinkel declined to confirm whether the body was the woman but did say the search for her had been called off.

Tinkel tells The Journal Gazette the park search involved a helicopter while firefighters and officers searched a gravel pit, pond and wooded area. He says foul play isn't suspected.
