Authorities have identified the body of an Iowa man who fell through the ice Friday night.

Adair County Sheriff’s office says 62-year old James Wallace of Casey fell through the ice of a private gravel pit.

The DNR urges people to be cautious on and around ice because the recent warmer temperatures make ice conditions unpredictable.
