MILLER COUNTY, AR (KSLA) - Authorities in Miller County, Arkansas have confirmed they found the body of a man reported missing last week.

According to the Miller County Sheriff's Department, the body of 39-year-old Brent Crabtree was found just after 5 p.m. Sunday in a wooded area not far from Crabtree's home.

Crabtree was reported missing last week by family members who reportedly told authorities he hadn't been seen or heard from since July 5.

Search and rescue crews from Miller and Bowie counties spent Sunday looking for Crabtree.

Authorities say it's still early in their investigation, but right now, no foul play is suspected.

Crabtree's body will be sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy.

The case remains under investigation.
