Flooding Gasconade River claims Hartville man
HARTVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- The second wave of flooding this spring claims a second victim.
The Missouri State Water Patrol says 43-year-old Oscar Roberts of Hartville died Friday night. His body was found in the flooded Gasconade River.
The Water Patrol's dive team responded after a Chevy Blazer was seen along flooded Highway E. No one was inside but the keys were in the ignition and the driver's window was down.
Roberts' body was recovered nearly four hours later a quarter-mile from the vehicle.
On Thursday, 14-year-old Kenneth Davidson of Bunker died while trying to cross the Mill Creek arm of Loggers Lake in southeast Missouri. The boy was holding a metal cable but the higher-than-normal currents caused him to lose his footing and he was swept away.
