Missing man found dead near New Town

NEW TOWN, N.D. — A body found floating in the Four Bears Marina on Monday morning has been identified as that of a missing man, according to Three Affiliated Tribes law enforcement.

Daniel Mossett, 31, who had been missing since November, was identified through an autopsy by the North Dakota medical examiner’s office, according to reservation authorities.

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.
