WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. (AP) - Divers have recovered the body of a missing man from a river in the Wisconsin Dells.

Twenty-one-old Mitchel Blanchard of rural Pardeeville was reported missing by his family Sunday.

Wisconsin Dells police say they had responded to a disturbance call at Captain Brady's Showboat Saloon early Sunday and had tried to make contact with Blanchard.

Officers say Blanchard took off running and disappeared into a wooded area.

WISN-TV reports investigators found Blanchard's vest near the Wisconsin River on Sunday, and located his body in the waters near a dam on Monday around noon.

The Columbia County medical examiner has scheduled an autopsy.
