A northwest Iowa man who had been reported missing died in a traffic accident. Family members hadn’t seen or heard from 29-year-old Michael David Ahlers of rural Remsen since early Saturday.  A search for Ahlers ended just after noon Monday when the pickup truck he had been driving was found partially submerged in the Little Sioux River on Iowa Highway 140, north of Kingsley.  He had died. Plymouth County Sheriff Mike Van Otterloo says foul play is not a factor in the accident which is still being investigated.
