The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office believes Henry Groeneveld has been found.

Sheriff’s spokesperson Shari Ireton said City of Everett employees were clearing brush at Dagmar's Landing in north Everett Tuesday morning when they found the body of the missing Snohomish man. The 63-year-old was last seen by his wife in early December.

Groeneveld abruptly left their home on 400 block of Union Avenue on the morning of Dec. 11. He told his wife he was going to the river.

Snohomish Police led a search the week Groeneveld went missing that encompassed Snohomish and Pilchuck Rivers, the Avenue D Bridge, railroad trestles and First Street, according to the agency. The county’s major crimes unit took over efforts once no leads were left to pursue.

Groeneveld's family continued to look for him. Massive community searches were organized in the weeks following his disappearance.

Liz Dickson, one of his daughters, updated the Facebook page dedicated to finding her father Tuesday. She announced that he had been found, and asked people to take down any flyers that had been put up in the area.

“I wish this was not how my Dad left this world he thought was so wonderful,” she wrote in the post. “I wish he could have known how much we all cared about him. Please pray for us as we are just completely crushed.”

Ireton said identification materials and clothing that the man was wearing when his body was found have led the agency to believe it is Groeneveld. He was described as having gray hair and blue eyes, and was last seen wearing a red knit cap, brown pullover shirt and blue U.S. Postal Service pants.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner was called to the scene Tuesday, and will complete an investigation to confirm the man's identity, and cause and manner of his death.
