A hunter who was found dead in west-central Minnesota has been identified as 56-year-old Alan Marcus, of Willmar.
The identification was reported Monday by the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office, one day after Marcus was found dead on a hunting property approximately eight miles north of Willmar.
Marcus had gone bow hunting early Saturday. His family was unable to contact him so they reported him missing around 3:30 p.m. His body was discovered Sunday during a ground search led by the sheriff's office and the Kandiyohi County Rescue Squad.
"The exact cause of death will be determined by Midwest Medical Examiner's Office, but no foul play is suspected," the sheriff's office said Monday.
