Search turns up no signs of missing Norfolk man

March 22, 2019

NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say an extensive search has turned up no sign of a man swept away during flooding in Norfolk.

Madison County Sheriff Todd Volk says nearly 70 people, a helicopter and airboats looked without success Thursday for 30-year-old Scott Goodman. Volk says Goodman was last seen at about 4 a.m. March 14 on top of his car in a field just east of North First Street near a levee. He was later observed being carried away by a surge of water.

The search ran for about 5 miles (8 kilometers) along the North Folk of the Elkhorn south to a little beyond where it meets the Elkhorn River.

The flooding followed heavy rains and snowmelt earlier this month and has been blamed for three deaths.

Another Nebraska man also is still listed as missing. Authorities say Kenneth “Kenny” Angel hasn’t been seen since Spencer Dam failed March 14 in Holt County. The wall of water and ice destroyed his residence and business just east of the dam. The Holt County attorney didn’t immediately return a call Friday.
