WHITMAN, N.D. -- There is no indication foul play was involved in the death of a Grand Forks hunter who went over the weekend near here, according to the Walsh County Sheriff's Office.

Travis Wade Vorachek, 45, was found Monday lying in cattails about a quarter mile northeast of where deputies found Vorachek's ATV rolled near 112th Avenue Northeast and County Road 19, about 10 miles northwest of Whitman.

His body was transported to UND Forensic Pathology Lab for an autopsy. A cause of death has not been determined.

A three-day search ensued after Vorachek was reported missing Saturday morning. He had intended to meet his father for deer hunting but never showed up, Sheriff Ron Jurgens said.

The Sheriff's Office said in a news release it would like to thank everyone who was involved in the search. Hundreds of volunteers helped authorities search for Vorachek.
