An elderly Panhandle man missing for three weeks, has been found dead in a pond.
Bonifay officials say the man, 69-year-old William Austin Gurley, wandered away unnoticed from the Happy Acres Living Facility in Bonifay on December 8th.
A search of the area failed to turn up any trace of the man, but he was found in a pond about a mile away Wednesday morning.
The investigation is still underway and the cause of death has not been officially determined yet.
An autopsy will be performed.
