Sixty-year-old Mark Rollins of Decorah was reported missing Tuesday and the sheriff’s department in Park County, Montana had been searching for him. Park County Sheriff Scott Hamilton says authorities were unable to identify the victim, but they had no other reports of missing persons in the area.
Rollins went to Montana to hunt for elk. He was expected back home in Iowa on Monday or Tuesday. The sheriff says it appears the victim they believe to be Hamilton fell off a cliff. Authorities started their search Tuesday afternoon and found the body shortly after 11 o’clock Iowa time on Wednesday morning.
