HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ A body pulled from the Arkansas River
has been identified as that of a missing South Hutchinson man.

The body of 40-year-old Shawn Burditt was recovered Sunday night
in Hutchinson after it was spotted by some hikers. Authorities had
searched the area where the discovery was made when Burditt
disappeared in November.

Reno County Sheriff's Capt. Wayne Baughman says the body appears
to have been in the water for some time.
