Body Of Missing Man From 2005 Possibly Found

Authorities believe they found Tuesday morning the body of a man missing for 4-1/2 years.

Carteret County deputies say a body was found in the Jeep Cherokee that was submerged in Gallants Channel, near Piver's Island.

They believe the body is that of George Quinn, who disappeared on February 5, 2005 after a bad breakup with his girlfriend. That SUV was the same vehicle Quinn was last seen driving.

Quinn was 31-years-old at the time he disappeared. Deputies say Quinn lived in Nash County for most of his life, but moved to Cape Carteret a year before he disappeared.

The vehicle was discovered Monday night by a recreational diver. Sonar equipment from Atlantic Beach and the Sheriff's Office dive team were used in the recovery.
