HARRISVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia State Police say the body of a missing Ohio man has been found in Ritchie County.

State police 1st Sgt. B.S. Snodgrass says investigators believe 68-year-old Lee Salzwimmer of North Canton, Ohio, died from injuries suffered in all-terrain vehicle accident.

Snodgrass tells the Parkersburg News and Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1hubVCQ ) that the ATV apparently rolled over.

Salzwimmer was reported missing on Sunday after he didn’t return from an ATV ride. Searchers found Salzwimmer’s body on Monday in a partially wooded area.

Snodgrass says Salzwimmer and his family own property in the area between Harrisville and Cairo.

He says the coroner decided that an autopsy wasn’t needed.
