Dover Police say a body found in the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal is that of an airman who went missing from Dover Air Force Base more than a month ago.
The department said in a news release Friday that Senior Airman Keifer Huhman's body was found Thursday by a fisherman in the canal along Dutch Neck Road.
The 21-year-old airman was reported missing on Feb. 10 after he failed to report for duty. Huhman's truck was found on the shoulder of the bridge spanning the canal.
