Marquette County Sheriff Greg Zyburt tells WLUC-TV that the body of Dennis Pellinen of Ishpeming was found Wednesday by sheriff's deputies at the scene of a crashed snowmobile.

The station reports deputies determined Pellinen was last seen in the Delta County community of Rock early Sunday. His disappearance prompted days of searching after he didn't show up for work Monday and family members filed a missing person's report. Heavy snow made the search more difficult.

The crash is being investigated by the Delta County sheriff's office.
