CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say a body pulled from a river is that of a southwest Missouri man who has been missing since a police chase earlier this month.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 22-year-old Tyler J. Smith, of Carthage, was found around 10 a.m. Sunday in the Spring River in Carthage. The Joplin Globe (https://bit.ly/1OljTNO) reports that Jasper County Coroner Rob Chappel pronounced Smith dead at the scene.

Smith disappeared Dec. 1 while fleeing from officers during a car chase. He was reported missing four days later.

Authorities say they don’t suspect foul play in the death.
