Body of missing Fergus Falls man found near Nevis

The body of a missing 39-year-old Fergus Falls man has been found near the town of Nevis in northwestern Minnesota.

Tony Kjaglien (chag-LEEN') was found dead Friday near his truck in a semi-wooded area four miles southeast of Nevis, which is about 10 miles east of Park Rapids and about 70 miles northeast of Fergus Falls.

Volunteers and law enforcement officers on the ground and in the air searched a large area around Park Rapids, where Kjaglien was last seen Tuesday.

His body was discovered after a tip from a trapper who saw his truck and surmised it had been there a couple days.

Capt. Steve Adams of the Fergus Falls Police Department says the investigation is still ongoing and an autopsy is planned, but no foul play is suspected.
