MONTICELLO, Minn. – The body of a deceased adult male was found Sunday afternoon in a marsh south of Interstate 94 near Dalton Avenue in Monticello.

Volunteers from United Legacy were assisting in a search for Tyler Berg, a missing 24-year-old from St. Cloud, Minn., when the body was discovered.

Wright County Sheriff Joe Hagerty reported that the body was found around 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon. The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy and make a positive identification.

Berg was last seen at his home a week ago on Nov. 22. His abandoned vehicle was discovered the following morning near Otter Creek Park in Monticello. Articles of clothing, believed to belong to Berg, were found at the park and Monticello Country Club golf course.

The incident remains under investigation.
