LANKING, N.D. (AP) - Authorities believe they’ve found the body of a Grand Forks hunter missing in Walsh County.

Walsh County Sheriff Ron Jurgens tells WDAY-TV that a body found in cattails Monday is being sent to the University of North Dakota for an autopsy.

Forty-five-year-old Travis Vorachek was last heard from when he spoke with his wife by phone about 8 p.m. Friday. He was supposed to meet his father for deer hunting Saturday morning but didn’t show.

Authorities found his all-terrain vehicle crashed a quarter mile from his parked truck, along with his stocking cap.

More than 100 volunteers have been helping in the search, which also involved a U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter and a drone from the Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Office.
