Body of missing Spearfish man found in rugged terrain
The Associated Press - April 12, 2018

DEADWOOD, S.D. — Authorities confirm that the body of a missing Spearfish man has been found three months after he disappeared in Deadwood.

Deadwood Police Chief Kelly Fuller tells the Black Hills Pioneer that the body of 28-year-old Christopher Oien was found Wednesday night in a remote area by a person searching for deer antlers.

Fuller says members of Lawrence County Search & Rescue and the Deadwood Volunteer Fire Department were called in to help recover Oien's body from steep and rugged terrain.

Oien was in town for a hotel stay. He was last seen alive on videotape in Deadwood early on Jan. 15.

The police chief says Oien's body was found a half-mile outside the search area authorities had focused on.

An autopsy is pending.
