Body Found Was Missing Airman

Anchorage police have confirmed that a body found north of downtown Anchorage earlier this week was that of an airman missing for three weeks.

Lt. Dave Parker says the body found was that of Senior Airman Clinton Reeves of Raytown, Mo.

Parker spoke during a Thursday morning news conference at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

Reeves failed to report for work at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson on April 23. His rental car was found later, with uniforms and groceries inside.

Another airman, James Devinn Thomas, was arrested Tuesday on charges of evidence tampering.

Police call Thomas a “person of interest” in the case.
