The Dowd family is saddened to share the news that the body of Charlie Dowd was found Friday, September 21 in Haigler, NE, an area between Fort Morgan, CO and McCook, NE. The body was spotted by a BNSF railway worker and immediately reported to the authorities.
 
It's unclear what exactly happened. One possibility the family was looking at was that the 69-year-old may have fallen out of the train.
 
Dowd was last seen on a California-to-Chicago Amtrak train a week ago Thursday. His luggage and medicine made it to Chicago. He was nowhere to be found. The family had been searching in Lincoln earlier this week after some reported sightings.

The family posted this on their Facebook page: "While the family is devastated, they would like to express their gratitude for the many prayers, support, and messages posted to the Charlie Dowd Facebook page, and for the efforts of the many volunteers who have helped search for him this past week."
