Authorities find body of missing Eudora boater in central Kansas reservoir

HILLSBORO — Authorities have found the body of a missing boater in a central Kansas reservoir.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office says in a news release that 46-year-old Steven Meyer, of Eudora, was found around 9:15 a.m. Monday in the Marion Reservoir.

He was reported missing around 1:20 a.m. Sunday. The release says his truck and boat trailer were found at the Marion Cove boat ramp. And his unoccupied boat was recovered just after 3 a.m. Sunday floating against trees along the north side of the Marion Reservoir.

The release says an autopsy is pending.

Correction: A previous version of this story included the incorrect age of the boater. Steven Meyer was 46 years old.
