Missing Ohio Man Now Recovering from Surgery

WILMINGTON -- A man who was missing for five days is recovering after undergoing surgery at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

Jeff Keller suffered a broken pelvis and two broken vertebrae, but he is expected to make a full recovery.

The Columbus, Ohio, native was found below a bridge over Smith Creek Wednesday.

Police have yet to talk with Keller about his ordeal, but they believe he spent almost five days in the swampy area off MLK Parkway.

Keller may have to undergo more surgeries before returning to Ohio.
