WISCONSIN DELLS, WI (WTAQ) - A missing southern Wisconsin man has been found dead in the Wisconsin River at Wisconsin Dells.
21-year-old Mitchel Blanchard of Pardeeville was last seen early Sunday, running away from police officers who were investigating a fight at Captain Brady's Showboat Saloon in the Dells.
Officials said the chase ended when Blanchard ran into a wooded area. His family called 911 later on Sunday to report his disappearance.
Officials said his vest was found near the river on Sunday -- and rescuers found his body near a dam on the river about noon Monday.
An autopsy has been scheduled. Media reports said Blanchard attended his sister's wedding several hours before the Wisconsin Dells bar fight.
