UPDATE (Monday, August 20): The man who went missing in Jackson County last week, prompting a three day search, died of a heart attack.
Search crews found the body of 62-year-old Charles Gehringer of Holt at the Tompkins Township nature area where he had been walking his two dogs.
Police had suggested that medical problems might have been responsible for his death.
UPDATE (Thursday, August 16): Police have found the body of a 62-year-old Holt man who went missing in Jackson County.
Charles Gehringer disappeared Tuesday night when he went for a walk with his two beagles in Tompkins Township.
The dogs turned up, but Gehringer did not.
That prompted a search that involved a large number of officers - even a helicopter.
Searches on Tuesday night and Wednesday failed to turn anything up, but police say they found Gehringer's body at around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday morning in a wooded area off Onondaga Road and Bell Lane.
Msp officials say there is nothing suspicious about Gehringer's death. Jackson Post Commander Michael Krumm says he died suddenly and his diabetes may have been a factor, though an autopsy will ultimately reveal the cause.
"You always expect the best. And when it comes out not the best, it's always a hard situation when you lose somebody," said Sgt. Kathy Fitzgerald, with the MSP Jackson Post.
"You want to make sure you put everything forth to find the individuals, and I think that's what we did in this case. We're glad we can bring closure to the family, unfortunately it's just a situation where he didn't survive," said Krumm.
Although there was a lot of help with the search, including volunteer K9 and mounted units, helicopters and people on foot, it was still difficult.
"The terrain was very heavily covered in brush, swamp area, muck area. It was a very large area," said Fitzgerald.
MSP Officials say at times people may have only been 10 or 15 feet away from Gehringer's body and still not have seen it.
"He also had clothing on, that he kind of blended in to the terrain. He was wearing brown chaps if you will, blue jeans and a green shirt, which made him a little more difficult to find," said Krumm.
