His death is being investigated as an accidental drowning, 办公室说.
Bueker was last seen near Mud Lake, where his body was later found, the sheriff’s office reported.
      After time had passed and no one had seen or heard from Bueker, worry began to set in,” 发布说. “A search for Bueker by family and friends began.
        After the sun set, the family had still not found Bueker, so they called 911, 发布说. An extensive ground and water search was conducted late into the night and early morning by the sheriff’s office and wildlife officers with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

          The family helped authorities identify the recovered body as Bueker’s and an autopsy will be performed by the State Medical Examiner, 警长办公室说.
          I truly pray that the successful recovery of Judge Bueker’s body by our deputies and Arkansas Game and Fish Wildlife Officers brings some sense of closure to the Bueker family and those who knew him best,” Woods said.
