After more than a week, the search for a missing Dothan man is over. Police say they found the body of Jerry Decapua Sunday in a wooded area in Pike County.

Police are not saying much about the case. The 42-year-old was last seen at a friend's on Saturday, February 5th, around 10:30pm, driving his 2003 white Chevy Silverado. According to Jerry's family, he was on medication which could cause erratic behavior.

Preliminary reports show Decapua died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. His truck and the gun have been located and police do not suspect foul play.
