Body of missing man found

The body of Lebanon police officer Joseph Bowen has been found after his truck plunged into Dry Creek off of Nashville Highway at Dowelltown Thursday morning.

Lawmen say Bowen left work in Lebanon around 6 a.m. and was headed to DeKalb County; however, he did not make it home. A search for his whereabouts began around noon and shortly thereafter his truck was spotted in rain-swollen Dry Creek. Preliminary indication is that he ran off the four-lane, missed the safety barrier and plunged over an embankment into the flooded creek. The truck was found submerged on its side.
