UPDATE: Family says body is that of missing Dunlap man

ELKHART — The mother of a missing Dunlap man says the body found near Six Span Bridge Thursday is her son.

“The police told us it was him,” Sheila Miller said Friday.

Miller is the mother of Mark Miller, 44, who had been missing since Sept. 7.

Authorities have not publicly identified the body as Miller’s.

The body was found Thursday along the south bank of the St. Joseph River, just east of Six Span Bridge, near the intersection of C.R. 17 and Ind. 120. The body was stuffed into a 55-gallon steel drum, according to Capt. Jim Bradberry with the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department.

Miller had owned The Tattoo Shop in Dunlap, and a friend told The News Thursday he did charity work and fundraisers.

An autopsy was scheduled for 12:30 p.m. today.
