Authorities in Sweet Grass County believe they found the body of a man who has been missing for close to two weeks.

A county resident contacted authorities on Tuesday, saying they found a body in an area that was recently searched.

The search for Bryce Arneson,28 of the Bozeman area began March 30 when authorities responded to a call for an erratic driver near Greycliff.

The driver fled from authorities, but due to severe weather they backed off, set up a perimeter and requested back up.

They began searching for Arneson again the following morning. They found his vehicle in a creek but there was no sign of him.

The body found Tuesday has been taken to the state medical examiner’s office in Billings and an autopsy will be conducted to determine a cause of death and identify the body.
