PERU, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities in southeast Nebraska have identified the body of a man found on a bank of the Missouri River.

The Nemaha County Sheriff's Office says the body was that of 43-year-old Mark Miller, of Omaha. People fishing by the river north of Peru found the body Oct. 27.

Miller was presumed missing Oct. 2 after a boat he'd borrowed was found unoccupied floating down the river. Miller had been camping near the river in Fremont County, Iowa.  A crime is not suspected.
