GRESHAM, Oregon — A body pulled from the Sandy River near Gresham, Oregon, has been identified as that of a 29-year-old Gresham man missing since late February.
Multnomah County sheriff's Lt. Steve Alexander says Kyle Peterson walked away into a heavily wooded area on Feb. 24, after a car accident in Troutdale.
Alexander says a hiker reported seeing the body Friday, floating by a log near the mouth of the river. River patrol deputies retrieved it.
The county medical examiner will investigate the death.
