Thirty-six-year-old Christopher Etchison had been reported missing in Barron, Wis., last Friday.  Pine County investigators were able to identify a cabin on McDermott Creek Road as a possible location involved in the case, and found Etchison dead at the cabin on Tuesday.

The sheriff's office said there is no obvious cause of death.  The body was taken to the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.

Pine County investigators and agents from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension interviewed persons of interest in the case, but authorities did not announce any arrests.
