No evidence of foul play.

On Thursday night, fishermen found the body of the man who went missing in the Mississippi River back on May 9.

The body was discovered 15-20 miles south of where a woman had first seen him going into the water near Houska Park.

La Crosse police have confirmed the body is 29-year-old David Reckase of La Crosse. 

Reckase was discovered by fishermen around 5:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police say Reckase "willingly entered the river," and there is no evidence of foul play.

A witness walking her dog on that evening in Houska park said she saw Reckase struggling and calling for help.

Several agencies assisted in the search for Reckase over the last week.
