Body of Lost Neb. Man Is Found

The body of Wayne Yohe, 25, of near Harrison, Nebr., was found Tuesday where he had toppled off a 10-foot snowdrift near Warren's Pole Creek ranch, about 20 miles northeast of Cheyenne.

The body was found by Wayne's brother, Homer, of near Omaha. Homer and another brother, Lyle of Livermore, Calif., arrived at Cheyenne on Tuesday to aid in the search. The youth's father, Guy W. Yohe of Crawford, Neb., was also there.

Yohe had been missing since a week ago Sunday, when he left his stalled truck and family on the Torrington highway to seek help.

He made it to the Schenefelt ranch, but upon learning that there was no phone there, tried to go the next three and a half miles to the Pole Creek ranch.
