ALVARADO, Minn. (AP) — The body of a Crookston man has been found three days after he went missing.

Marshall County Chief Deputy Randy Olson says 50-year-old Roy Gustofson was found dead Monday in the yard of a mobile-home park in Alvarado.

Olson says a firefighter who was driving by discovered Gustofson’s body on the ground by a storage shed. The body was clothed and had no visible injuries.

The chief deputy tells the Grand Forks (N.D.) Herald he suspects hypothermia in the death. An autopsy will be performed.

Gustofson was last seen alive about 8 p.m. Friday in a vehicle with two other men, who went inside a mobile home in the park to get some keys. When the men came out, Gustofson was gone.
