Missing South Dakota man found dead

RAVINIA, S.D. - An 83-year-old Ravinia man who was missing for more than five weeks has been found dead.

According to a news release issued Thursday by the Charles Mix County Sheriff’s Office, the body of Harold Cavier, who had been missing since March 26, was found Wednesday by law enforcement in a farm field about two miles east of Corsica. That’s about 25 miles north of Ravinia.

When Cavier was reported missing, authorities said he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and other medical conditions.

The sheriff’s office declined to say whether a cause of death has been determined and did not release further information.

The Charles Mix County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and state Division of Criminal Investigation are continuing to investigate, the news release said.
