PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Prineville man reported missing Saturday, was found dead Sunday morning, of an apparent accident.

Heggie was last seen leaving a bar Friday night, and alcohol and/or medical complications may have been factors in his death. Police say there is no evidence of suspicious or criminal activity.
