The body of William Callahan, 69, was found Sunday afternoon by a search party headed by Washakie County Sherif Oscar McClure on the Woosley ranch about 16 miles southeast of Ten Sleep.

Mr. Callahan, a shepherd employed on the Woosley ranch, has been missing since last Wednesday. It was believed death occurred Wednesday afternoon, due to a heart attack. (22 June 1966)

Members of the search party on foot and horseback included John and Debra Melin, Russ and Donna Lyons, Frank Gray, Roy and Jane Turner, Don Terry and Game Warden Dick Keeney. Searchers were attracted to the location of the body by the sheep dogs, which had remained with the dead man.

Mr. Callahan was born Aug. 13, 1896. He had come to the Ten Sleep area about 10 years ago from Shoshoni, and had been employed by the Woosley ranch for about seven years.

Survivors include a daughter, Mrs. Gladys Adams of Rapid City, S. D., and a son, Robert Callahan of Parma, Idaho.
