Kansas Man’s Body Found 3 Days after Swept Away by Flooding

KSAL StaffAugust 22, 2016

Authorities say they’ve found the body of a man three days after he went missing after being swept away by floodwaters near Wichita, Kansas.

Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet says the body of 62-year-old Richard Lowery was found Monday in a field near a pond downstream from where he vanished after torrential storms dropped up to 7 inches of rain.

Herzet has said Lowery and his son were in their pickup truck near a creek south of Rose Hill when they drove into water over the road and tried to back out. That’s when Herzet says the truck got swept away.

The son, 38-year-old Samuel Lowery, managed to escape the truck and floated to safety downstream.

Lowery’s pickup truck and some of his clothing already were found last weekend.
