PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities say a Parkersburg man whose body was found along a riverbank died from exposure.

WTAP-TV (http://bit.ly/Xr6dUN ) reports that the medical examiner's office and Parkersburg police consider Nick Blackburn's death accidental.

A state Division of Highways worker found the 29-year-old Blackburn's body last Wednesday along the Little Kanawha riverbank in South Parkersburg. Blackburn's family had reported him missing two days earlier.
