SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the discovery of a man’s body in the Big Sioux River.

Minnehaha County sheriff’s officials say the body of 50-year-old Leland Dwight Fallis was found by kayakers in the river northwest of Brandon late Saturday afternoon.

Chief Deputy Jeff Gromer says Fallis was last seen leaving his Sioux Falls home on foot last Wednesday. An autopsy could provide an answer as to what caused his death.
