Authorities don't suspect foul play in the death of a man in his 80s who was found dead in the Missouri River near a campground in northeast Nebraska.
The man's body was found Wednesday.
South Sioux City Police Chief Scot Ford says rescue boats helped recover the man's body near the Scenic Park campground.
Ford said Thursday that the family requested that the man's identity not be released.
Ford says it doesn't look like the man had been boating or fishing before his death, but there's no indication of criminal activity.
South Sioux City Parks Manager Gene Maffit says the man wasn't registered as a guest at the campground.
