Missing man found dead

VALPARAISO - An Omaha man who had been missing since he went pheasant hunting Monday morning was found dead Tuesday in western Saunders County.

The body of Michael S. Odermann, 41, was found about 1 p.m. today about eight miles north of Valparaiso by deputies from the Saunders County Sheriff's Office, who had been searching for him.

Sheriff Kevin Stuckenholtz said Odermann was found on public hunting land about 100 yards from where his 2004 GMC Denali was parked.

"He may have been the victim of a hunting accident," Stuckenholtz said.

An autopsy will be performed Wednesday.

According to Kari Hiepko-Odermann, Odermann left his home sometime around 8:15 a.m. on Dec. 21.

Although a conscientious employee, Odermann did not report to his workplace as scheduled that day. When he did not come home that night, his family became worried and contacted area law enforcement.
