Active search suspended for missing man

September 9, 2014

Rural Albion, Iowa - The active search for 52 year-old Kevin Kroener has been suspended. A coordinated search effort has taken place since Saturday evening in an attempt to locate Mr. Kroener, who is believed to have been swimming in the Iowa River.

Search parties included dozens of members of the Albion, Liscomb, Green Mountain and Marshalltown Fire Departments, Story County Sheriff's Office, Marshall County Emergency Management as well as other trained search and rescue volunteers and professionals assisted in the expansive land and water searches utilizing search techniques on foot, ATV's, scent-sniffing canines, watercraft, dragging equipment, SONAR and underwater divers.

Without a witness placing Mr. Kroener in the water, the Marshall County Sheriff's Office and other agencies made diligent efforts to locate Mr. Kroener on land in the area where his vehicle was located. The evidence at this time suggests that his body is in the water of the Iowa River.

The coordinated search effort has been suspended at this time; however, our office will be utilizing volunteers to periodically survey the river in an attempt to locate the body of Mr. Kroener. Our Office understands that the family, friends and community members may continue searching the area. We ask that our Office be contacted immediately at 641-754-5725 if anything relevant or suspicious is located.

Mr. Kroener remains listed as a missing person in the national database.

We give countless thanks to the dedicated members that have assisted in the search effort and our thoughts and prayers remain with the family of Mr. Kroener.
