Woman reported missing at Wyalusing Beach

A woman who reportedly took an early morning swim went missing at the Wyalusing Beach in Wyalusing Township Wednesday morning, Aug. 3, according to official rescue personnel on scene Wednesday. The woman, who has since been identified as Virginia Aberle, 29, of Chicago, Ill, went missing from her group of friends that were camping at the beach around 3 a.m. Information was received that she was apparently in the water when she went missing.

In anticipation of a possible drowning, dragging operations on the river started immediately by the Grant County Search and Rescue Team as well as various rescue volunteers from the surrounding communities.

By Thursday, the Grant County Sheriff's Department reported that Aberle was presumed drowned and a recovery effort was put in place. Recovery was suspended overnight Wednesday but continued into Thursday and Friday, Sheriff Nate Dreckman said.

Editor’s note: This is the final installment in the series highlighting the work of the Prairie du Chien police force.

While people might think police officers do not want to be filmed, they actually do want to be. In fact, police officers often review these videos as part of their own learning processes. “We review squad videos to look for improvements we can make,” said Sgt. Kyle Teynor.

The Prairie du Chien Common Council is making it even easier for the police force to learn, with help in obtaining body cameras. On Aug. 1, 12 body cameras were received due to a $10,000 grant. “A vast majority of the footage from the body cameras will show a job well done. And, we’ll use them to prove criminal behavior. Believe me, officers want them,” asserted Teynor.
