Man dead after hunting accident


A 56-year-old man was found dead Saturday morning after a hunting accident.

According to the Batavia Police Department, the man's wife became alarmed when her husband did not return home Friday night. Friends, family, volunteers and members of Central Joint Fire and EMS searched for the man Friday night and into early Saturday morning.

The group of people continued their search Saturday at 7:30a.m. and found the body in a wooded area between College Drive and Meadowbrook Drive. Police say it is likely the man fell out of a tree.

An autopsy will be conducted at the Hamilton County Coroner's Office.
