HOLTON, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a Topeka man reported missing recently has been found dead in northeast Kansas.

Jackson County authorities were notified Sunday about a missing Topeka man who was reportedly headed to Jackson County.

Jackson County Sheriff’s deputies and Potawatomi Tribal Police Officers began searching for the man in southwestern Jackson County and found the man’s body Sunday morning in a wooded area. He apparently died from a gunshot wound.

The man’s name hasn’t been released, but authorities say they don’t suspect foul play.
