The Carroll County Sheriff's Office reported Tuesday that the body of a Baltimore City man missing in the area of Liberty Reservoir since Sept. 9 had been found.

According to the Sheriff's Office account, Baltimore City Watershed Rangers patrolling the reservoir were stopped by a motorist just before 9 a.m. on Sept. 13 along Liberty Road (Route 26) reporting an object floating in the reservoir north of the Liberty Road bridge.

With the assistance of a Baltimore County Police Helicopter, rangers located a partially decomposed body in the water and called Sheriff's Office deputies and the Rescue Dive Team from the Gamber and Community Volunteer Fire Company to assist.

The body was recovered and identified as 44-year-old Christopher Anthony White of Baltimore.
