COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - A body found in western Alabama has been identified as a missing Mississippi man.

The Commercial Dispatch reports that Henry Lee Easley was found dead from a gunshot near U.S. Highway 82, about two miles from the state line in Pickens County, Alabama.

The family of the 52-year-old West Point, Mississippi, resident reported him missing after a relative dropped him off in Columbus after attending a wedding in nearby Caledonia. The body was found Sunday, and the family identified him Thursday.
