UPDATE: Lac du Flambeau tribe confirms body found in water, DOJ cancels missing person alert

On Thursday afternoon, the Wisconsin Department of Justice's Crime Alert Network cancelled its "Endangered Missing Person Alert" for 24- year- old Antonio Roche. Rouche was last seen in Lac du Flambeau May 5. The cancellation of the alert seems to indicate searchers are no longer looking for Roche.

At about 10 a.m. Thursday, searchers found a body in Pokegama Lake in Lac du Flambeau. However, the Lac du Flambeau tribe would not confirm whether the body was that of Roche. Spokeswoman Kim Swisher said the tribe is waiting for the Vilas County Sheriff's Office to report on the autopsy of the body before confirming an identity. That report is expected on Friday.
