— The body of a hunter missing for more than two weeks has been recovered in southeastern Kansas.

Forty-four-year-old Kennon Landry, of Altoona, disappeared in early December in Wilson County after calling his fiancee to say he was on his way home from hunting. An oil worker found Landry's truck the following week, rolled over near a river.

KOAM-TV reports a Texas recovery team using scanning sonar found Landry's body Saturday under brush in several feet of water, more than 100 yards from his pickup. Authorities are awaiting results of an autopsy.

Personnel from several law enforcement agencies looked for Landry in the days after his disappearance. Hundreds of volunteers then continued the search on their own.
