Search suspended for missing Iowa man

Posted: Updated:

SOLDIER, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities have suspended the search for a missing western Iowa man who may have fallen through lake ice at Oldham Recreational Area.

On Sunday, hunters found a pickup owned by Walter Ordway near the recreation area. The Monona County Sheriff's Office says it's believed that Ordway took his dog for an outing to the recreation area on Nov. 17 and that the dog fell through the ice into the freezing water. The sheriff's office says Ordway may have fallen into the water while trying to rescue his dog. The dog's body was found nearby.

The 66-year-old Ordway lives in Soldier.

The search was temporarily suspended because of concerns about the safety of lake ice. The recreation area will be closed through the weekend.
