The body of a missing New Castle man was found near McConnells Mill State Park in Lawrence County Thursday afternoon.

The body of Jeffrey Glenn Alborn, 49, was discovered in  Slippery Rock Creek at 2:30 p.m. after a nine-hour search.  A passing motorist alerted Pennsylvania State Police around 5:30 a.m. of a man standing near a bridge railing on U.S. Route 422 above Slippery Rock Creek.

His truck was found nearby with a blood trail leading to the bridge. Nearly a dozen police and fire departments helped during the search.

An autopsy will be performed Friday at the Heritage Valley Medical Center in Beaver, Pa., to determine the cause and manner of Alborn’s death.
