KENSAL, N.D. (AP) - Foster County officials say the body of a missing Kensal man has been found. Sheriff Mike Tufte (tuhft) said 26-year-old Joshua Blahna's body was found around 11 a.m. Monday. He had been missing since April 25.

Tufte says family members found Blahna's body more than a mile south of where he is believed to have entered the James River.

State and local authorities had been searching the James River area after Blahna's car was found near his mother's house about 10 miles northwest of Kensal and one of his shoes was found by the river.

An autopsy is planned.
