A grim discovery was made near The Salt Shed music venue on a Saturday morning in Chicago. The body of a man, missing for several days, was recovered from the Chicago River, according to official reports.
Rescue personnel removed the man’s body from the river around 9:45 a.m. Unfortunately, he was declared dead at the location.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the man’s identity as Noah Enos, who had disappeared five days prior. Enos, 26, had last been seen attending a concert at The Salt Shed on Monday night, where he was with a work friend.
According to Enos’ girlfriend, the two got separated when Enos went to use the restroom, and they failed to find each other after the concert. Enos’ cell phone battery ran out at approximately 10 p.m., and he never arrived home.
Enos’ girlfriend had been actively seeking him earlier in the week. She mentioned she started calling hospitals from Tuesday morning, trying to find him, and the realization of his absence began to sink in.
She also admitted to having a hunch that something might be wrong when she drove past The Salt Shed early Monday morning. She emphasized that such a disappearance was very out of character for Noah, who would usually keep her updated about his whereabouts, even if it meant borrowing a friend’s phone to do so.
Currently, local detectives are working on the case to understand the circumstances of Enos’ death. Further information will be revealed following an autopsy by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
