UPDATE: Body of missing duck hunter found in Brookings County lake


ARLINGTON, S.D. (AP) – Authorities have found the body of a missing duck hunter in eastern South Dakota, three months after his boat capsized.

Brookings County Emergency Management confirms the body of 28-year-old Thomas Hill was recovered Saturday afternoon.

A resident flying over Brush Lake in a helicopter spotted Hill’s body. Authorities were notified and found his body on the lake near Arlington.

Hill was duck hunting with his brother, 23-year-old Matthew Hill of Volga, when their boat capsized in early December. Matthew Hill’s body was recovered in December.

Officials had been searching for Thomas Hill’s body ever since.
