More than four months after an Oakdale man was reported missing while kayaking on the Wisconsin side of the St. Croix River, his body has been located and identified.

Vue Her, 49, was found Tuesday by two hunters walking along the river bottoms of Interstate State Park, northeast of the Twin Cities, authorities said last week.

Her, 49, had been missing since July 12, when the Chisago County (Minn.) Sheriff’s Office received a report of an empty kayak north of Rock Island on the Wisconsin side of the river. A tackle box and keys to a vehicle were inside.

Deputies found Her’s vehicle at Interstate Park in Taylors Falls. His family then filed a missing person report with the Oakdale Police Department.
