SHAWANO COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Shawano County Sheriff's officials say a man who was reported missing last year was found dead in a pond over the weekend.
Family members of 42-year-old Paul Hudson say he had not been seen since last July; however it wasn't unusual to go for long periods of time without hearing from Paul.
But by October, his absence had friends and relatives concerned. Sheriff's investigators say they searched for Hudson unsuccessfully for several months.
On Sunday around 3 p.m., a body was pulled from a pond near Shawano Lake in the Town of Wescott. Authorities say an initial analysis indicates the body is that of Hudson.
Investigators don't suspect foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
