SHOW LOW, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a missing man has been found dead on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests in eastern Arizona, apparently having been struck by a falling tree he had cut.

The Apache County Sheriff's Office says the death of 60-year-old Greg Foster of Show Low apparently was accidental.

Foster was found Wednesday near Big Lake following a search launched Tuesday after he didn't return from going woodcutting Monday.
