    IL - Dean Meador, 77, Lanark, 13 Dec 2007 - Ice Fishing


    15 Dec 07

    Authorities in Carroll County say a rural Lanark man is still missing after an ice-fishing accident near a boat ramp on the Mississippi River just south of the Savanna Army Depot.

    Two area fishermen, 36-year-old Bradley Gallentine of Milledgeville and 77-year-old Dean Meador of rural Lanark, were involved in the accident Thursday night. Gallentine was listed in good condition last night at Illini Hospital in Savanna, but Meador has not been found.

    From the Article on March 21st, 2008:

    CLINTON, Iowa — Authorities believe a body found in the Mississippi River near Clinton this morning is that of a Lanark, Ill., fisherman who went missing in December near Savanna, Ill.

    The Union Pacific Railroad bridge operator reported seeing what he believed to be a body in the river near the Beaver Channel Slough about 8 a.m. today, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department.

    A tugboat from ARTCO Fleeting Services was able to retrieve the body from the river.
