ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - St. Cloud police identified a man whose body was found in a St. Cloud vacant lot last weekend.

The body of Jeffrey Lee Eggers was found lying face down in the lot along the 1000 block of 4th Street Southest just after 12:30 p.m. Saturday, according to St. Cloud police.

Eggers, 59, had been missing from his home at the River Crest housing development since Oct. 11. River Crest is a state-funded complex that serves at home to some of the St. Cloud area's chronic inebriates.

No signs of foul play were visible and the cause of Egger's death was not immediately known.

An investigation was underway with the assistance of the Benton County Medical Examiners Office.
