PORTLAND -- Search and rescue crews looking for a missing Southwest Portland man found his body Tuesday night.

Police said 61-year-old Samuel Coleman, of Portland, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

His family reported him missing Monday, after he failed to return home from what they called a possible cross-country ski trip.

Late Tuesday, Coleman's van was found east of La Pine in Central Oregon. His light-blue, 1995 Nissan Quest was in the Ten Mile Sno-Park.

Searchers found the body in the same area Wednesday and identified it as the missing man.
