VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi man reported missing has been found dead inside his truck.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace told WAPT-TV that 71-year-old Eddie Brent went fishing on Saturday near the Steele Bayou Flood Control Structure and drove off the levee road. Brent was found Sunday afternoon in a Chevrolet pickup with a disabled license plate.

Pace said the cause of death was the wreck, but the state crime lab will conduct an autopsy.
