A man who went missing Saturday night in eastern Iowa was found today. The Benton County Sheriff’s office confirms that 22-year-old John Skalsky, Jr. was found alive, but badly injured, over the noon hour. Family, friends and strangers had been searching for him since Sunday.
Skalsky did not have a car and left his home in Blairstown Saturday evening to walk to a party in Norway, nine miles away. He never made it. A family member told KCRG-TV that Skalsky was found near train tracks between the two towns and had apparently jumped off a train. He was taken to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.
