The Stevens County Sheriff's Office located the body of 27-year-old Brian Sullivan of Kettle Falls on February 13th at approximately 12:40 p.m.
According to the Sheriff's Office, Sullivan was located in a remote area approximately seven tenths of a mile north of his home which is near the 3600 Block of Northport-Flat Creek Road.
Sullivan had been reported missing on the morning on January 28th, and had last been seen around 2:45 a.m. His vehicle was found four days later parked near the beach of the Columbia River by a neighbor.
Stevens County Search and Rescue, the Stevens County Sheriff's Office, and the U.S. Border Patrol conducted searches by both land and boat in the immediate area, but did not locate Sullivan. No air searches were conducted at that time due to weather.
On February 15th, an aerial search of the area was conducted with the assistance of the U.S. Customs and border Protection Air Wing. Authorities spotted Sullivan's body from the air, and he was recovered a short time later by Sheriff's Office personnel.
