BLOOMINGTON - A man from Normal who went missing two weeks ago apparently drowned.
McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling said Monday 35-year-old Sebert Jay Crose Jr.'s preliminary cause of death is consistent with drowning.
Crose's autopsy was completed Monday afternoon. Kimmerling said his body does not show any signs of blunt force or gunshot injuries.
Crose was found late Sunday night in Evergreen Lake. Kimmerling said he was found in about 10 to 15 feet of water and the time period Sebert may have been in the water is consistent with the last time he was seen alive.
The Normal Police Department and McLean County Sheriff's Department continue to search for Sebert's vehicle.
