Body of missing man found

Family members discovered the body of 25-year-old Jay Brandon Price last Tuesday, days after he had been reported missing.

The body was found in the Locust Fork River and its recovery was made by members of the Cleveland, Nectar, and West Blount volunteer fire departments.

Price had been reported missing the previous week – on Thursday, May 7 – and authorities had been searching the area around Swann Bridge along the river up to Hwy. 160.

A positive identification has been made but determination of the cause of death is pending results of an autopsy
