HARRY W. CHASE Rural Two Rivers Man River Victim Harry Chase, 22-Year-Old, Found In River Guardsman Was Missing Since Early Sunday The body of PFC Harry Chase, 22, of Rt. 2, Two Rivers, was recovered from the Manitowoc River at about 8:16 a.m. Monday at the foot of South Ninth Street by members of the Coast Guard who dragged the river as part of a search for the National Guardsman who had been missing since early Sunday afternoon. Chase, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilford Choase, was taking part in a multiple drill maneuver of the 1096 TLB Co. at Manitowoc and was with a number of other guardsmen aboard the landing barges used for training purposes and moored along the dock at the Quay Street municipal parking lot. He was posted as a sentry to keep an eye on materials aboard the barges while the remainder of the detail went to eat. One of the guardsmen said he last saw Chase at about 1:30 pm. Sunday. Authorities said that when the body was brought up off the edge of one of the barges the wristwatch Chase was wearing had stopped at 1:10 p.m. No Foul Play According to Coroner Dr. Theodore Teitgen, the body bore no marks to indicate foul play and he assumed that Chase had slipped and fallen into the water. Lt. Austin Munson, commanding officer, said he did not know whether or not Chase was able to swim but added that it was not customary for guards to wear life jackets for that kind of detail. When relief sentries arrived at about 2 p.m. Sunday they were unable to locate Chase and a detail was sent out at 3:15 p.m. to attempt to locate the missing man. Police were asked to cooperate at about 6 p.m. A check by police with the Chase home in rural Mishicot at 6 a.m. revealed the missing man had not come home and city police notified the Coast Guard at Two Rivers. The guard brought equipment and began dragging and the body was recovered shortly thereafter in about 20 feet of water. Investigation. Chase joined the Manitowoc unit of Wisconsin National Guard in 1956. A formal military investigation of the drowning is underway.
