The body of a 71-year-old rural Brainerd man was found Friday in the man's septic tank, Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl said Saturday.
Dahl said the man had not been heard from for about a week and friends arrived at his home south of Brainerd Friday to attempt to find him. The Brainerd Fire Department also was called to the home at 4:45 p.m. Friday.
Dahl said there is no indication of foul play but the man's cause of death remains under investigation. Dahl did not release the man's name Saturday morning.
