MAEBASHI, Gunma Pref. (Kyodo) A body thought to be that of missing cartoonist Yoshito Usui, the creator of “Crayon Shinchan,” was found on a mountain straddling Gunma and Nagano prefectures Saturday morning, police said.
The body, which was found by a climber at the base of a steep cliff on Mount Arafune, will be recovered Sunday to determine if it is that of the 51-year-old cartoonist, who went missing Sept. 11, the police said.
