NAPERVILLE – A Naperville man was found dead Friday after the truck he was driving broke through ice on a creek in Wisconsin.

Edward Steinhardt, 30, died of cold exposure, according to the Washburn County Sheriff’s Office.
Police found him about half a mile away from his truck, which had broken through the ice on Dilly Lake in Potato Creek, police said.

A St. Louis business notified police Thursday that one of its trucks and its driver had gone missing Dec. 23. A GPS system in the truck helped authorities locate Steinhardt on Friday, police said.

A preliminary investigation indicates Steinhardt was driving across the ice on Dilly Lake and then broke through the ice on Potato Creek. Police suspect he exited the truck and walked along the creek before likely dying from exposure to the cold.

An autopsy is pending, according to police.
