    IA - John LaBarre, 58, Davenport, 6 June 2015

    Family fears for Davenport man missing since Satuday

    A Davenport man is missing after he last was seen at a favorite fishing spot near the bike path along the Mississippi River.

    John LaBarre had set up camp Saturday downstream of the Marquette Street boat ramp, near the railroad bridge, according to his daughter, Cheyenne LaBarre.

    He often camped there, she said, to do some night fishing. His gear was found Sunday, strewn about the ground, and his cellphone was found in shallow water, she said.

    This is my hometown. I know this bike path and area VERY well. The whole sign of a struggle does not sound good.

    A Davenport man is missing after he last was seen at a favorite fishing spot near the bike path along the Mississippi River.

    John LaBarre had set up camp Saturday downstream of the Marquette Street boat ramp, near the railroad bridge, according to his daughter, Cheyenne LaBarre.

    He often camped there, she said, to do some night fishing. His gear was found Sunday, strewn about the ground, and his cellphone was found in shallow water, she said.

    "It looked like it was a struggle," she said. "The only thing we can think of is that he ended up in the river."

    A missing person report has been filed, and LaBarre's information has been entered into the police database, NCIC. A detective also has been assigned to the case, Davenport Police Capt. Brent Briggs confirmed Tuesday.

    Cheyenne LaBarre said she last saw her dad at 11 p.m. Saturday. He had his bike with him, along with his fishing poles, tackle box and cellphone.

    "The way his gear was scattered around, he would never do that," she said. "There was also change on the ground."

    Although he frequents the area where many homeless people camp, she said her dad is not homeless. His family became especially concerned when he did not show up for work Monday at his roofing job.

    Several flyers with LaBarre's photo and family contact information have been placed along the riverfront. About a half-dozen fishermen were in the area Tuesday and said they saw the posters and were keeping a lookout.

    Anyone with information about LaBarre's whereabouts is asked to contact the Davenport Police Department at 563-326-6125.

    It sounds like they found his body on a barge.
