Douglas Authorities Believe Body is Missing Hiker

RENO, Nev. (AP) - Douglas County authorities believe a body found on the banks of Clear Creek near the Douglas-Carson City line is that of an Indian Hills man missing since January.

The body was found by a hiker early Sunday.

Investigators say while positive identification could take several days, they are fairly certain the deceased man is Dennis Kelly.

Kelly, 62, was last seen by his wife on Jan. 14 when he left the couple's home to take a walk.

Authorities say there is no evidence to suggest foul play.
