WEST CHESTER, Ohio — The body found in a West Chester pond belonged to a missing man, the Butler County coroner's office said Monday.

Police responded to a 911 call around 5 p.m. Saturday after a person walking near a pond at the Union Station Apartments said they believed they saw a human body. Officials recovered the body of an adult male.

The coroner's office identified the person as 31-year-old Alexander Enslen, a man West Chester police said had been missing since January 31.

According to a report released by the coroner's office, the preliminary cause of Enslen's death was an accidental drowning.
