CHARLES CITY | A body has been discovered in rural Floyd County amid an investigation into the disappearance of a Grundy Center man who has been missing for more than a month.

The body hasn’t been identified, but officials with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation said it was found Friday near 290th Street and Shadow Avenue, about 10 miles south of Charles City.

DCI officials said this was the area where law enforcement had previously requested the public’s assistance regarding the missing person from Grundy County.


Michael Bruce Johns, 28, was reported missing Oct. 26. He was last seen in an area between Greene and Charles City around 6 a.m. Oct. 25.

DCI said earlier this week that the suspect foul play in Johns’s disappearance.

Anyone with information about activity in the area of 290th Street and Shadow Avenue around October 25 is asked to call the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office at 641-228-1821.
