German police: Body of missing Scottsdale man pulled from Rhine River

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFURT -- German police say that the body of a man pulled from the Rhine River has been identified as missing 22-year-old Devon Hollahan of Scottsdale.

Frankfurt police said Tuesday that Hollahan was positively identified through DNA testing. His body had been pulled from the Rhine on Dec. 15 near the town of Boppard, which is about 62 miles northwest of Frankfurt.

Hollahan was reported missing Nov. 21. His father, Jeff Hollahan, traveled to Frankfurt to search for his son and spent three weeks canvassing the city and tacking up fliers with pictures and contact information. He returned home to Scottsdale last week.

Police say Hollahan died from drowning and they don't suspect foul play.
