    bob i don't think it was "one of our guys"

    there was several of them out and some of them were close to the events like nearly came up on it i think
    they were talking about it eariler
    but i think all our mwt guys have been accounted for

    thats a relief to us for sure but who ever the feller was he was still a hunter and still has a family and friends so prayers remain even if there is a sigh of relief here on mwt.

    Missouri Water Patrol recovered the body
    of a missing hunter Monday night after
    dragging a section of the Mississippi
    River near Dresser Island.
    Lou Amighetti of the Missouri Water Patrol
    identified the man as Kristopher Van
    Meter, 25, of Maryland Heights.
    Van Meter and Shawn Griggs, 47, of
    O ’Fallon, Mo., had gathered branches in a
    johnboat and were taking the branches to
    a duck blind when their boat started
    taking on water just before 2 p.m.
    Monday. As they started to sink, the men
    swam for shore, Amighetti said.
    Griggs was able to get to shore, but he lost
    sight of Van Meter. The men were not
    wearing lifejackets, Amighetti said. He
    said the men were co-workers, but he did
    not know where they worked.
