Kris Markle

The Webster County Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that the body of Kris Markle has been found.

Sheriff Jim Stubbs said the missing man’s body, as well as his vehicle, were located just south of the landfill in Fort Dodge in what he described as a “ravine, washed-out area.”

The body was found by a landfill worker around noon.

Stubbs said the investigation is ongoing, but at this point there is nothing to indicate Markle met with foul play.

Markle went missing on Dec. 5. He was last seen at Bootleggers Bar and Grill in Fort Dodge.
