GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Authorities have found a body they believe to be that of a northeast North Dakota farmer who has been missing since his pickup was swept away by floodwaters in April.

Fifty-five-year-old Guy Miller, of Minto, was driving a pickup along a gravel road west of Minto on April 29 when floodwaters washed his vehicle off the road about two miles from the family farm.

Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild said that a body was found Saturday in the Forest River about a mile west of Minto. The sheriff says authorities are not 100 percent sure, but they are confident the body is that of Miller.

Wild says authorities did not find any identification, but will check dental records to confirm the identity.
