Search for missing man in Neuse River now recovery effort

CRAVEN COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – Craven County authorities now say they have switched from a rescue effort to a recovery mission along one part of the Neuse River.

Crews were back out on the river this afternoon in the area of the Spring Garden Road boat ramp looking for the body of 41-year-old Anthony Parker, of Greenville.

The Highway Patrol said they recovered a car with a woman’s body inside on Monday.

The woman has been identified as 40-year-old Shenethia Daniels, of Greenville.

Daniels’ family told law enforcement that she and Parker had not returned to Greenville from a trip to New Bern. Troopers believe that the two had left a New Bern bar prior to the discovery of Daniels’ body and the vehicle in the Neuse River.

Troopers said the investigation is ongoing but added that no foul play is suspected.
