UPDATE: Brookings Police have recovered the body of 26-year old Jacob Heisinger from a grain elevator in Brookings. Heisinger had been missing since the early morning hours of October 23rd. Police do not suspect foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

Police were acting on a tip when they began draining the corn from the elevator yesterday, but with the elevator full, they had to continue the work today.

The search was suspended just before 6:00 PM Tuesday night. It resumed at 8:00 AM Wednesday morning.

Heisinger is a native of California, but had been attending classes at SDSU for at least the past couple of years.
