Authorities say a 23-year-old Illinois man who was reported missing in early August was found dead in the Black Hills National Forest.
Lt. Steve McMillin of the Custer County Sheriff's Office says the body of Jordan Baznik of Naperville, Illinois, was found around 5:30 p.m. Friday less than a mile north of the Iron Creek trailhead.
Authorities found the body in a heavily wooded area just as the search for the man was about to be suspended for the weekend.
An autopsy has been scheduled in Rapid City. Authorities say they don't suspect foul play.
The newspaper reports Baznik and friends were driving through the area en route to Canada. He separated from his friends at a Keystone hotel after saying he needed a towel.
