The body of missing Converse County Sheriff's Deputy Bryan Gross, 29, was recovered Sunday afternoon around 2 p.m. approximately 1/2 mile from where he is believed to have entered the water of the North Platte River.
Deputy Gross was killed in the line of duty after attempting to save a young girl from the fast-flowing North Platte Thursday evening.

She was later rescued near the Richards St. bridge by some good Samaritans and Douglas Police Department officers.
