Body of missing man found in Swatara Creek

Posted: Updated:

State police have found the body of a 21-year-old man who went missing during a party along the Swatara Creek in Lebanon County over the weekend.

Maxwell Duesterhoeft's body was found in the creek around 11 a.m. Friday, about a mile from where he was last seen, police said.

An autopsy is scheduled Monday.

Duesterhoeft had attended a party at a picnic area off Pine Road in East Hanover Township a week ago. He was last seen early Saturday after he removed his shoes and walked toward the edge of the creek, according to police.

His vehicle was left at the picnic area, and the only sign of him had been footprints in the creek bed, police said.
