Searchers on Wednesday evening recovered the body of one of two Minnesota men who disappeared while canoeing in northwestern Wisconsin last month.

Ryan J. Busch, 26, of New Ulm, Minn., was found dead in the Minong Flowage in Wascott. Authorities are still searching for Andrew DeRock, 27, also of New Ulm, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office reported in a news release Thursday morning.

The two men went out in a canoe on Oct. 28 and were reported missing after family found their capsized canoe Oct. 29. A search effort with drones and personnel took place for the next few days but became a recovery effort earlier this week.

A GoFundMe site has been established for the families.
