FIRST ON 3 UPDATE: Jogger hit and killed identified


UPDATE: The State Highway Patrol says the man hit and killed by a car last night is Georg Peter Anderl. The 53-year-old just moved to Wilmington from Cedar Rapids, IA, for his job with Chemtex USA.

Investigators say Anderl missed a 10 a.m. meeting today, and that's when his company alerted police. Coworkers say Anderl was a very dedicated executive, so they knew something was wrong when he did not show up to work.

Anderl's wife and two children still live in Cedar Rapids. Troopers say his family was notified by Iowa State Highway Patrol Tuesday afternoon.
