This just in from 7th Infantry Division Public Affairs Office at Joint Base Lewis-McChord:

The Thurston County Sheriff Department recovered the body of Spc. Christopher S. Dombroski, 20, of Wasilla, Alaska, a Joint Base Lewis-McChord Soldier missing since April 13.
Dombroski was a Stryker systems maintainer. He entered military service in August 2011 and attended Advance Individual Training in Military Occupational Specialty 91S (Stryker Systems Maintainer) at Fort Lee, Va. Dombroski served on one overseas deployment to Afghanistan from November 2012 to July 2013 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
He was assigned to the 4-2 Styker Brigade Combat Team at JBLM in May 2012. His awards and decorations include the Army Commendation Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terror Medal, NATO Medal, and Army Service Ribbon.
Thurston County search and rescue crews found Dombroski's remains Tuesday. Thurston County authorities informed the chain of command that they suspect there was no foul play involved. The incident is still under investigation.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Spc. Dombroski's family and friends during this time of loss," said Lt. Col. Joseph Sowers, 7th Inf. Div. Public Affairs Officer.  "We'd like to thank Thurston County search and rescue crews and Gray's Harbor authorities for their efforts. Our focus now is on supporting the survivors who have lost their beloved son, friend and teammate."
