MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) -- A Twin Cities man who disappeared while hunting in Dunn County has been found dead.
  
Sheriff's officials say Clifford William Frederick was found Friday morning under a tree treetop that apparently broke off in high winds and fell on him. Family members called authorities after the West St. Paul man failed to return from turkey hunting Thursday. First responders, family and friends searched the property owned by one of Frederick's relatives.
  
The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/J4f1X1 ) says Frederick's body was found near the town of Tiffany.
