EL DORADO (KATV) - The body of a missing 9-year-old boy has been found, according to Captain Bill Hickman with the Union County Sheriff's Office. Capt. Hickman says Bollen's death appears to be from a hunting accident. No foul play expected at this time.

Hank Bollen was last seen Monday when he was squirrel hunting west of El Dorado. The 9-year-old reportedly went hunting with relatives at the Spotsville Deer Camp south of U.S. 82 near Marysville.

The search efforts by law enforcement, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, volunteers and family members focused around Shuler Road. Arkansas State Police also tried to find the boy by helicopter.

The search was suspended Tuesday morning.

People helping with the search efforts have commented that a body has been discovered near the Union-Columbia County line. The Union County Sheriff's Office has not made an official statement.

Bollen's body is being sent to the State Crime Lab for an autopsy.

Channel Seven's Matt Mershon is in Union County. He will have the details at 5 & 6. You an also follow him on Twitter for updates.
