GOODVIEW, Minn. (AP) - Police say a man whose body was found in a stone quarry in Winona County apparently fell 30 to 40 feet.

Goodview police say an autopsy on the body of the 39-year-old man will be done in Olmsted County. He has not been identified.

Police Chief Kent Russell tells KAGE (http://bit.ly/dkv18q ) the man's family reported him missing Oct. 16, but that he had not been seen or heard from since Oct. 3.

A number of law enforcement agencies conducted a search for the man on Saturday and found his body in the quarry located on a bluff area behind Sahler (SAY'-ler) Addition.
