Sad Ending To Silver Alert

The body of a rural Chillicothe man that was the subject of a Silver Alert was located Monday.  Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox says 82-year-old Gerald Avery had been missing since last Thursday.

Cox says on Sunday, a citizen flew over rural Livingston County and located what he thought was Avery’s vehicle in the Sampsel area in northwest Livingston County and reported it to law enforcement.  The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department and Chillicothe Department of Emergency Services responded and were assisted by neighbors in getting to a remote area in the river bottoms via UTV.  Livingston County Coroner Scott Lindley was summoned to the scene and Avery’s body was recovered near his car.  The investigation continues.
