Authorities have found the body of a man who wandered away from his rural northeast Iowa home on Sunday. Divers discovered Ted Leichtman’s body in a farm pond about a quarter-mile from his home yesterday afternoon. Officials searched the pond after spotting cracks in the ice. The 54-year-old New Hampton man hadn’t been seen since Sunday when his wife reported him missing. Sheriff’s deputies say Leichtman suffered a head injury in a fall last week and may have been confused and disoriented when he left his house. Hundreds of people searching for Leichtman spent three days in sub-zero weather combing fields and woods in Chickasaw County.
