VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities in southeast South Dakota believe that the body recovered from the Vermillion River over the weekend is that of a man who was reported missing in mid-September.

Vermillion Police Chief Matthew Betzen says authorities are “reasonably sure” that the body recovered Sunday is that of 31-year-old Evan Stajduhar. Betzen says authorities do not suspect foul play at this time.

Betzen says a caller reported seeing the body, which has then pulled from the river just south of the city of Vermillion. Betzen says an autopsy is underway.

Stajduhar has been missing since Sept. 16.
