WASHINGTON CO., Ore. (KOIN) — The Washington County Medical Examiner has identified the man found dead in Bethany Lake Wednesday night.

John J. Walsdorf II, 46, was reported missing by his family on March 1. Search and Rescue crews looked for him in the area earlier in the week because there was reason to believe he was suicidal.

A 911 caller reported seeing the body in Bethany Lake Park shortly after 7 p.m. on March 15, and when Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue crews recovered the body, officials said the man had been dead for some time.

No foul play is suspected and there is no danger to the public, the sheriff’s department said.
