Following an intense four-day search for Deputy Bryan Gross of the Converse County Sheriff’s Department, we are now hearing reports that Deputy Gross’ body has been recovered from the North Platte River.


Search and recovery efforts ended Sunday morning at approx 11:20 am when the body of Deputy Bryan Gross was recovered from the waters of the North Platte River in Douglas.  Deputy Gross was located between the I-25 Bridge site and Anderson Dairy Bridge, appx 1.5 miles downstream from where he entered the river.

Deputy Gross entered the water on Thursday afternoon July 28th in an attempt to rescue a juvenile female who was reported to be struggling in the river. The girl was rescued and removed from the river. Immediately upon her rescue from the water, and while accounting for all personnel involved in the rescue, it was discovered that Deputy Gross was missing.  Search efforts for the Converse County Deputy began immediately thereafter.  His vehicle was located on Pearson Street, and his vest, boots, shirt and duty belt were located a short distance away near the river.
