KSAL StaffJanuary 2, 2014

The body of a Fort Riley soldier who disappeared while duck hunting on Christmas Eve has been recovered from a Kansas lake.

The Geary County Sheriff’s office says 31-year-old Thomas Hedrick’s body was retrieved Wednesday from Milford Lake.

The sheriff’s office says Hedrick became stranded on ice on the lake while trying to retrieve a duck he shot. He called for help when his makeshift boat began to sink but fell through the ice before help arrived.
