Man's body recovered during search for missing hunter near Shelly

The body of a missing hunter was found Saturday night in a wooded area northwest of Shelly.

The Norman County Sheriff's Department says it searched the area after being notified around 7:45 p.m. Saturday from family that a man in his 20s was missing. The man was out hunting deer. Attempts to reach the man by phone were unsuccessful, prompting the search.

The search lasted just over an hour before the body was recovered.

The name of the deceased man has not yet been released.

Authorities transported the body to the Grand Forks medical examiner's office for an autopsy.

Norman County Sheriff's Office is currently investigating the incident.
