BOAZ, Ala. (AP) - The Etowah County Sheriff's Office says
searchers have found a body they believe to be a Boaz man who
disappeared two weeks ago.

The Gadsden Times reports the sheriff's office says the body found Thursday is that of 58-year-old Michael Winford Williams, who was last seen Nov. 7. A family member reported him missing Nov. 10.

Officials say the body was found off the road in a wooded area after the sheriffs office widened its search for the missing man.

Sheriff Todd Entrekin said the body was about a quarter of a mile from Williams vehicle, which was parked in a hay field.

Officials say the body has been sent to the Department of Forensic Sciences in Huntsville for positive identification and to determine the cause of death.
