Missing 17-year-old Wyatt Rowland Found Dead

MILLER, SD- After multiple days of searching, 17-year-old Wyatt Rowland has been found deceased.

Hand County Sheriff Shane Croeni gave an update at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Fire Hall in Miller.

According to Hand County Sheriff Shane Croeni, Wyatt Rowland and his pickup were found separately in a small body of water north of Miller.
