Lac du Flambeau Band awaits results of autopsy in search for missing man



The Lac Du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians is waiting to hear from authorities in Wisconsin about the identity of a body that was pulled from a local lake.

The tribe isn't ready to confirm whether the body is that of Antonio Monserrate Roché. The 24-year-old citizen was last seen on May 5 and was reported missing on May 13.

"It appears no suspicious circumstances exist at this time but have not been ruled out," Bob Brandenburg, the tribe's police chief, said in an update released on Friday morning.

The body was found at Pokegama Lake on Thursday, the tribe said, following an extensive search of the area. Family and friends, as well as tribal and local agencies, came together to look for the missing man, whose nickname was "Oskar" or "Oscar."

"Anyone who knew Oskar loved him and that radiant smile that nobody will ever forget. He was the sweetest person around that never questioned helping anyone in need," a supporter of the family wrote on GoFundMe.


Family members who had earlier asked for people to help out with the search also said Roché passed away.

"My brother is all that I can think about," Gordon Kronquist wrote earlier in the week, while the search was still occurring.

A report on the autopsy is expected from the Vilas County Sheriff's Office on Friday, WJFW reported.
