Friends and family searched for 44-year-old Cardell Johnson of Beloit for more than a week.
“It’s been an emotional roller coaster for the last seven, eight days,” said family friend Renea Drummer.
Their search ended Wednesday afternoon when IDOT workers discovered a motorcycle and the body of a man just north of Wagon Wheel Road on Route 2 in Rockton.
“Our officers arrived, inspected the area, found a motorcycle that appears to be involved in a one vehicle crash, with a deceased male,” said Winnebago County Deputy Sheriff Scott Meyers.
The Winnebago County Coroner’s office says the motorcycle is registered to Johnson, and the clothes on the body are consistent with what Johnson wore.
“His family has been here, his family is fairly confident that that’s who it is,” said Winnebago County Coroner Sue Fiduccia.
Shifting the focus from a search, to answering the question, what happened?
“It could have been anything, something could have come out in front of him and he tried to miss it and come off,” said Drummer.
Fiduccia says early investigations seem to show that only Johnson’s motorcycle was involved in the crash, but aren’t ruling anything out.
“Accident reconstructionists will be looking to see if maybe he was run off the road by another vehicle, were not seeing signs of that, but the investigation is very, very new,” said Fiduccia.
Fiduccia says it appears Johnson died around the time he went missing, leaving behind a wake of sadness for all those who knew him.
“Very heartbroken for his family, for his children, his wife, friends, coworkers,” said Drummer.
