ALMA — A body believed to be that of a man reported missing Sunday was found Monday not far from his home here, authorities said.
The Bacon County Sheriff’s Department was summoned to the residence on Ohio River Road about 5:30 p.m. Sunday, family members reporting that George Monroe Holton Sr., 76, was missing.
Deputies responded and asked the GBI for aid in finding the missing senior.
About noon Monday, the GBI said, a body was found in a wooded area adjacent to Holton’s home. The body was taken to the GBI Medical Examiner’s Office in Macon to determine a positive identity and for an autopsy.
Lawmen have not said if they suspect foul play in the man’s death but agents and investigators are pursuing leads.
