Police say Suder was last seen about noon Saturday just before a storm came through the area. Nearby residents called authorities after spotting the overturned boat the following morning.

Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson said a state police helicopter, officers, divers and the Coast Guard searched the river for most of the day. They found Suder's body along the shoreline, and his 16-foot skiff was found in about four feet of water.
