Decorah, IA (KROC-AM News) - The body of a missing Austin man has been found in northeastern Iowa.

A news release from the Winneshiek County Sheriff's Office says the missing hunter, identified as Maya Htoo, was located Thursday in a wooded area of the Canoe Creek Access Area northeast of Decorah. Htoo was reported missing Wednesday evening after he and another Austin man came to the area to hunt and he failed to show up at their designated meeting area.

A search was started and continued through the night, and on Thursday morning, the Sheriff's Office says multiple agencies and local volunteers were called to assist in the effort, which led to the discovery of a man's remains.

An autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of his death.
