An extensive search of McConnell’s Mill State Park in Lawrence County on Thursday led to the discovery of the body of a 49 year-old New Castle man.

Searchers say the body of Jeffrey Alborn was discovered in the water near Rose Point about 150 feet from where an eyewitness reported a possible fall from a bridge.  A search began around 8:00 AM Thursday, and responders early on discovered a truck with its engine still running.  Alborn’s body was not found until early afternoon.

A State Police helicopter, responders from six volunteer fire companies, air and ground ambulance personnel, and a canine search team were all called in to the search.  An investigation into Alborn’s death is continuing.
