DAYTON, NV (KOLO)-- The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office says a man found dead in a Dayton irrigation ditch has been identified as a man reported missing in October.

Deputies were sent to the area of Townsend Street in Dayton about 1:15 p.m. April 24, 2019. Surveyors had found the body of 34-year-old Frank Greene. Greene was reported missing in October 2018.

Investigators say the body had been there an "extended period of time," and DNA was used to confirm the identity.

Investigators say the missing person report has been closed and his death investigation is still pending, although foul play is not suspected to be a factor in his death.
