Remains found in American Falls reservoir ID'd

By Associated Press. CREATED Dec 18, 2013

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) -- Remains found in the America Falls reservoir in early November have been identified as those of a Pocatello-area man who went missing during a June 2009 fishing trip.

Hunters found the remains on Nov. 3. The state pathologist in Boise said Wednesday they are the remains of Charles W. Knipp. He was 37 when he went missing.

Knipp's wife, who was out of state, reported him missing on June 14, 2009, when she didn't hear from him after a June 13 fishing trip.

Officials say Knipp's remains were found in the same area where searchers found his bass boat.
