The body of the missing California firefighter, Charlie Dowd, was found Friday, in Haigler, Neb. in an area between Fort Morgan, Colo. and McCook, Neb.
The body was spotted by a BNSF railway worker and immediately reported to the authorities.
While the Dowd family is devastated, they would like to express their gratitude for the many prayers, support, and messages posted to the Charlie Dowd Facebook page, and for the efforts of the many volunteers who have helped search for him this past week.
NTV will have more details as they become available.
