BADGER -- Authorities say a body found in a field near the eastern South Dakota town of Badger is that of a man who went missing nearly three weeks ago.

Kingsbury County Sheriff Kevin Scotting says dental records confirmed the body is that of 45-year-old Rollie Koistinen (KOY'-stah-nuhn), who had been missing since April 4.

The body was found this week by a farmer who was spreading fertilizer in a field.

Final autopsy results are pending, but Scotting says it appears Koistinen died of natural causes.
