EAGLE POINT, Ore. — The Jackson County sheriff's office says the body of a 69-year-old Bend, Ore., man has been found in the Rogue River in Southern Oregon.

The man was identified as Roy Knight, who was last seen camping at Rogue Elk Park on Monday.

The sheriff's office says an autopsy and toxicology tests are planned, but the medical examiner does not suspect foul play.

The case is under investigation.
