Missing Tate County man found dead

(WMC-TV) - A missing elderly man was found dead near his truck Wednesday.

Tate County Sheriff's deputies found the body of 85-year-old William Gregory near his truck.

The Tate County Sheriff's Office has not released any details on exactly where in the county they found Gregory's body and his truck.

They reportedly received the call just after 7:00 p.m. Wednesday.  Once they arrived on the scene, the coroner positively identified the body as Gregory's.

At this time, authorities do not suspect foul play, but an autopsy scheduled for Friday will reveal more.

Gregory was reportedly in the early stages of dementia.  He was last seen Tuesday when he left his home in the Arkabutla community headed to Senatobia in his GMC truck.
