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.
