At approx. 11:30 AM, the missing person's motorcycle and coat were found in a heavily wooded area south of Marshall-Leigh Rd. and Long John Rd. in the Scottsville area of the county.

Tracking dogs followed a scent path from the area of the discovery to the location where a body was found. The deputies cordoned off the area and a crime scene investigation has been initiated. The body of the missing person was pronounced dead by J.P. Westy Meisenheimer and an autopsy has been ordered.
