Body of missing man found in Carroll County lake

The search for Robert “Tank” Treadway, Jr. ended last night when the 34-year-old’s body was discovered in a Carroll County lake.

According to Carroll County Sheriff Andy Dickson, Treadway’s body was found in the lake by an adjoining landowner just after 5:00 p.m. on Monday, February 20. Treadway, who was last seen near Cedar Grove in Carroll County had been missing since February 5.

Treadway’s body was recovered and sent to the medical examiner for an autopsy.

Sheriff Dickson stated that Treadway’s cause of death was unclear, but that there were “no obvious signs of traumatic injuries.”

A call to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office on February 16th from an unnamed resident of Cedar Grove that said Treadway had been staying with him ‘off and on’.  The caller told the Sheriff that he saw Treadway on Feb. 5th and he was planning to go fishing in a nearby watershed lake.  The lake is about 100 acres in size.

“We will wait until the autopsy is complete before we make any determinations,” said Sheriff Dickson.
