A Barron, Wisconsin man who had been missing since Sunday was found dead in a Minnesota cabin Tuesday.

ABC affiliate WQOW says 36-year-old Chris Etchison was reported missing by a family member on Friday morning.


A tip on Tuesday led authorities to a cabin in Sandstone, Minnesota, where Etchison's body was found, the Barron Police Department said. A cause of death has not been determined yet.

Authorities say Levi Mattila and Jesse Scribner were arrested for identity theft and obstruction, and Marcelle Hill was also arrested for obstruction.

Barron Police, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Investigations, and the Pine County Sheriff's Department are now handling the case.
