A fisherman found the body of a Cross County auxiliary deputy missing since he fell off a bridge into the St. Francis River on Jan. 11.

Nick Swink, 24, was identified by his badge and personal ID, which were still in his wallet. WREG reported the fisherman who found Swink on Saturday afternoon had been searching daily for the missing man since his disappearance.

Members of the Sebastian County Search and Rescue team traveled to east Arkansas in February to help in the search.
