Rescue crews discovered the body of a man in Slippery Rock Creek on Thursday after searching through the morning near McConnells Mill State Park, state police in Lawrence County said.

The man was later identified as Jeffrey Glenn Alborn, 49, of New Castle, troopers said.

A motorist reported seeing a truck and a man standing near a bridge railing on Route 422 in Slippery Rock Township at 5:30 a.m. Alborn's body was found about 2:30 p.m. following a search by firefighters from more than a half dozen communities, search dogs and helicopters, troopers said.

An autopsy will be conducted at Heritage Valley Medical Center in Beaver to determine the cause and manner of death.

In a separate incident, crews briefly searched Connoquenessing Creek in Ellwood City on Thursday morning because a woman walking her dog reported seeing an empty, inflatable raft.

Firefighters checked around Leslie Sabo Bridge, where the raft was floating, but found no one.
