Sheriff Bill Benedict says officers are looking for 45-year-old John Loring.

On Tuesday afternoon, authorities found the body of a 65-year-old man in the Diamond Point area about 10 miles northeast of Sequim. Benedict says that man is a homicide victim apparently killed several days ago. He was not immediately identified.
