ALEXANDRIA - The body of a trapper has been found in Douglas County.

The Sheriff's Office says they were asked to do a welfare check on Friday on a 63-year-old man with a history of health issues. He had not been seen for about three weeks.

Deputies did not find him at his home.

Further investigation led them to a slough near East Lake Mary Road. A Conservation Officer checked the slough by kayak, where he found a male body partially submerged in the water next to a small kayak and trapping equipment.

The body was taken to the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office.

The death is under investigation, but foul play is not suspected.
