LANKIN, N.D. -- Officials believe a body found Monday is that of missing hunter.

Travis Wade Vorachek, 45, has been missing since Saturday. His overturned four-wheeler was found near the junction of Walsh County Road 19 and 112th Avenue Northeast, about 10 miles northwest of Whitman.

Vorachek, who was last heard from by his wife about 8 p.m. Friday, and his father had planned to meet Saturday morning for deer hunting. However, Travis Vorachek failed to show up.

About 125 people gathered Saturday to search the area where his overturned four-wheeler was found. Nearly 450 searchers combed the surrounding landscape on Sunday.
