HARLAN, Ky. (AP) — Searchers have found a body as they looked for a man missing in eastern Kentucky.

The remains have not been positively identified, but WYMT-TV (http://bit.ly/13s0zRQ ) in Hazard reported the family of Forester Bowling Jr. fears it was his body.

Bowling — who is 41 — was last seen alive on May 9 when he told his wife he was going job hunting. A friend found Bowling's pickup truck Wednesday night. Searchers found the body on Thursday and it has been sent to Frankfort for autopsy and positive identification.

Harlan County Emergency Management Director David McGill said Bowling was known to hunt snakes. The body was found on a wooded mountain near the Bledsoe community in Harlan County.
