Authorities search for missing Hillsboro man

The McKenzie County Sheriff's Department and assisting agencies were searching Friday for a Hillsboro, N.D., man who told a family member he planned to commit suicide in the Badlands.

Authorities are looking for Duncan James Templer since Wednesday on foot and using all-terrain vehicles and dogs, the Bismarck Tribune reported.

Templer, 51, is a truck driver for Trans Systems of Great Falls, Mont., and the search has covered a radius from his truck found unlocked and empty on a U.S. Highway 85 overlook south of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park North Unit.

McKenzie County Sheriff John Fulwider said he is treating Templer as a missing person and said it's possible the man left his truck and is with someone else.

The sheriff's department asks anyone with information to call (701) 444-3654.
