CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities say a 30-year-old man whose body was found on Casper Mountain likely died of hypothermia.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/18YWoCX) a group of mountain lion hunters found Zachary Lanka last Saturday. Lanka was last seen March 30 at the Parkway Plaza Hotel and Convention Centre, where he was living.

The Casper resident was reported missing by his estranged wife. Lt. Mark Sellers with the Natrona County Sheriff's Office says foul play does not appear to have been involved. ___
