HAVRE, Mont. – The body of a man who was reported missing last week has been found in Fresno Reservoir on the Hi-Line.

Hill County Sheriff Don Brostrom told the Havre Daily News on Monday that a volunteer on a jet ski discovered Jerry Donoven’s body.

Brostrom says the body was some distance from where Donoven’s boat had previously been found.

Donoven was last seen Thursday. More than 100 volunteers and officials from the sheriff’s office, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and the U.S. Border Patrol participated in the search.
