MADISON LAKE — Blue Earth County sheriff’s officials said a body found near a campground in Madison Lake is likely that of a man missing for about two weeks.

An autopsy is expected to provide details on how the man died. Thirty-eight-year-old Michael Cook of Madison Lake was last seen Nov. 25.

According to a press release, the body was found Wednesday in a slough about a quarter mile from the campground.
