Body of Ames hunter found in Boone County


AMES (AP)--Officials say the body of a 38-year-old hunter from Ames has been found in Boone County.

County Sheriff Ron Fehr says searchers found the body of Khouan Khamlue about a mile from where his vehicle was parked on state public hunting grounds.

The state medical examiner will determine his cause of death, but Fehr says it doesn't appear to be foul play.

Family members reported Khamlue missing Tuesday night. A deputy found his vehicle a short time later near old Highway 30 along the Des Moines River.

A search was delayed until daylight. Nearby roads were temporarily closed but were reopened Wednesday afternoon.
