    Groeneveld's daughter, Liz Dickson, told KIRO 7 News last year that she felt feels her father may have been involved in an accident. 

    "I think something really bad happened to him, he's out there and we need to find him," she said on December 16. 

    On Tuesday, Dickson posted on Facebook, "My Kind, Sweet Father’s body was found at Dagmar’s Landing in Everett just before 10 a.m. this morning. I wish this was not how my Dad left this world he thought was so wonderful. I wish he could have known how much we all cared about him."

    According to the Snohomish County's Sheriff Office, positive identification of the body is pending from the Snohomish County medical examiner, who will also determine cause and manner of death.
