Mossett is believed to have been living in New Town when he disappeared but had family in Twin Buttes, said Three Affiliated Tribes Police Chief Chad Johnson.

Mossett’s body was seen floating in the Missouri River and passed under the Four Bears Bridge before continuing south down the river at about 8 a.m. Monday, according to a statement from the McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office. A boat was used to float Mossett’s body to the shore.
