Posted: Updated:
SOLDIER, Iowa (AP) -- A body recovered from a lake in western Iowa is believed to be that of a farmer reported missing in November.
  
The body was pulled from a lake at Oldham Recreation Area near Soldier on Saturday. Officials say the body likely is that of 66-year-old Walter Ordway.
  
In December hunters found a pickup owned by 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 lake 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 lived in Soldier.
