ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) -- Atchison authorities say a truck pulled from the Missouri River belongs to an Atchison man who has been missing since late December.

A body was found inside the truck after it was removed from the river Sunday afternoon. Atchison police chief Mike Wilson says tests are being conducted to verify that the body is that of 69-year-old Garry Sandy.

The truck was spotted Sunday afternoon by a walker along the riverfront near downtown Atchison.

Officials had to fight high winds and strong currents while pulling the 2005 Dodge Ram from the river.

KAIR reports (http://bit.ly/1fq7ouG ) Sandy's family was at the scene and thanked everyone who had worked to find him, and to recover the truck
