NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities have confirmed a body found in Percy Priest Lake is that of a Davidson County man who had been missing for several days.

According to media reports, a fisherman made the discovery around noon on Saturday.

The body was later identified as 49-year-old Troy Stafford of Antioch, a community in south Nashville. He had gone fishing on the lake Wednesday, but never came home.

Stafford’s daughter contacted police after discovering his truck and boat trailer.
