Body of missing Antioch, Illinois man found in Des Plaines River

ANTIOCH, Ill. (CBS 58) -- The body of a missing Antioch man was found in the Des Plaines River near Libertyville, Illinois Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 15.

Lake County police say 24-year-old Tommy Howe was reported missing after a crash on I-94 Jan. 22.

Howe's body was found during a search of the river. 

Police say a kayaker was on the river Friday when he saw a jacket on the shoreline that matched the description of what Howe had been wearing.

Due to unfavorable conditions, divers only got back into the water Tuesday to search for Howe.

The Lake County sheriff's coroner's office will investigate Howe's death further.
