Body of Fresno man missing since August found in foothills, deputies say

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The body of a Fresno man was found over the weekend in the foothills months after his family declared him missing, according to the Fresno County Sheriff's Office.

Officials say a hunter found 65-year-old Hans Lamaack Saturday night in the area of Garnet Dike Boat Launching Site, three miles from where his vehicle was found back in September.

A bicyclist riding in a remote area of Trimmer Springs Road saw a Volvo parked with no one around around September 20 - September 21. The cyclist reported it to the Fresno Police Department, and the vehicle was later discovered to belong to Lamaack.

Lamaack's children reported him missing back in August after not hearing from him.

Officials say the cause of death is pending.
