VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) — Rescue crews searching the Sheyenne River have found the body of a Valley City State University student who disappeared while rafting with two friends.

Valley City Police Chief Fred Thompson says 23-year-old Daniel Charles Buehner and two friends climbed aboard an inflatable rubber raft that capsized early Monday. Thompson says 22-year-old Ryan Shaw and 21-year-old Hayden Johnson made it ashore, but Buehner did not.

University President Steven Shirley says Buehner was a senior majoring in business administration from Blaine, Minnesota. Buehner also played catcher on the school’s baseball team.

His body was found about Tuesday morning beneath a bridge, several hundred yards downstream.

Officials on Tuesday cut water releases through the Bald Hill Dam to lower the level of the river so officials could wade into the water to search.
