RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities say they do not suspect foul play in the death of a Nebraska man whose body was found in Badlands National Park in southwestern South Dakota.

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office says initial autopsy results on 39-year-old Joshua Jacobsen show no signs of trauma.

The body of the Laurel, Nebraska, hiker was found Sept. 16. He had been missing since mid-July. Dozens of officials from several agencies including the South Dakota National Guard searched for Jacobsen in a helicopter and on the ground, using dogs.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Dustin Morrison tells KEVN-TV (https://bit.ly/1j9NRX2 ) that final autopsy results are pending.
