Authorities on Thursday located the body of a 64-year-old Remer deer hunter last seen two weeks ago.
Cass County Sheriff Randy Fisher said Wilfred Kolden's body was found about 9 a.m. Thursday by ground searchers in a remote wooded area about six miles east of Remer.
Kolden, who suffered from bipolar disorder, was last seen in the Remer area by a friend on Oct. 16.
Kolden's pickup was found during ground and air searches Wednesday. Fisher said the pickup was undamaged and appeared to have been driven to the location where it appeared Kolden was bow hunting for deer.
Fisher said Kolden's body was found close to the location of his pickup, but was difficult to spot because he was wearing camouflage and blended into the woods.
An autopsy is scheduled but Fisher said there was no sign of foul play in Kolden's death.
"It appears natural," Fisher said.
