CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — A 26-year-old man who had been reported missing since Sunday, Nov. 7 was found dead by a rescue team Tuesday in Meadow Lake in Solon.

John Millhorn was reported missing on Saturday, Nov. 13 after he had last been seen the previous Sunday, Cleveland Heights police said.

"He has not been seen or heard from since Nov. 7, 2021 and his family says this is very unusual. They are very concerned for his welfare," police said at that time.

On Monday, Nov. 15, officers responded to the Sherwood Drive neighborhood in Solon to assist the Cleveland Heights Police Department while looking for Millhorn, according to a news release from Solon. A car known to be driven by Millhorn had been found parked and unoccupied at the Sherwood Lake community parking area.

Officers conducted an area search and neighborhood canvass but were unable to locate Millhorn.

The search resumed Tuesday morning, police said. A rescue team found Millhorn deceased in nearby Meadow Lake in Solon. Police said there are no signs of foul play, and further information will be available through Cleveland Heights police or the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's office.
