CHILDERSBURG, Ala. (AP) - Authorities in Childersburg say the
body of a 42-year-old man who went missing last week has been found in the Coosa River.
Childersburg police investigator Walt Smith says a fisherman
spotted the body of Dennis Edward Thein on Sunday about 5 miles
south of the Coosa River Bridge.
Thein was reported missing Thursday after wandering away from
his home last Monday night. His wife said she last heard from him
at 10:30 p.m. when he said he was going outside for a little while.
She did not hear from him for several days, but informed
investigators her husband had disappeared for short periods before.
The body was sent to Montgomery for an autopsy.
