A man is in critical condition after being found unconscious in a northern St. Louis County swamp.

The 72-year-old man, who hadn't been heard from in about two days, was found in the area of Camp 90 Forest Road and Ash River Road on Friday.  He was located by a neighbor.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office says it's believed the man may have been injured when his ATV struck a stump.  He was located a short distance from the ATV laying in the swamp.

The remoteness of the location and the swampy conditions hampered rescue efforts.

The man's name is not yet being released because family members are still being notified.
