WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Ohio — West Chester Township officials said the man who drowned in a pond over the weekend was not the person who has been missing since January.

West Chester police and fire responded at around 5:30 p.m. Saturday to a pond off Muhlhauser Road near Blossom Street. West Chester Township Spokeswoman Barb Wilson said a man was walking his dog when he saw someone floating face down in the pond and dialed 911.

“The victim was identified as a male. There appeared to be nothing suspicious at the scene,” Wilson said. “There was an area set up for fishing nearby and a truck on the scene, so it was presumed that he had been fishing.”

Wilson said the Butler County Coroner’s Office will identify the person, but did confirm in the meantime but it was not 31-year-old Alexander Enslen, who has been missing since January.
