ALBANY, Ind. (AP) - Police have found the remains of a 25-year-old man who vanished in early March after going camping along an east-central Indiana river during frigid weather.

The Star Press reports (https://tspne.ws/1EGzBs9 ) Benjamin L. Anderson’s body was found Monday in a wooded area along the Mississinewa (mis-ih-SIHN’-uh-wah) River about 10 miles northeast of Muncie.

Authorities theorize the Albany man likely succumbed to the elements, perhaps suffering hypothermia while camping on the night of March 6-7, when temperatures fell to near zero degrees.

Albany Police Chief Shannon Henry said Wednesday there were no indications Anderson was a victim of foul play. Toxicology results from an autopsy are pending.

Henry says Anderson had a backpack and supplies and had “built a shelter out of limbs and leaves.” He was last seen on March 6.
