GRAND RIVERS, Ky. (AP) — Search crews have found the body of a western Kentucky doctor who was reported missing last week.

Livingston County Deputy Sheriff Kenny Vincent told WPSD-TV (http://bit.ly/1oJH6cA) that crews with cadaver dogs found the body of J.P. Lyles on Wednesday afternoon near a walking trail. The 60-year-old was last seen on July 2 walking away from his condo at Marina Village, which is located nearby.

Search teams scoured 3,764 square acres and 12 miles of shoreline along Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake twice between Thursday and Friday in an attempt to find Lyles, who left home without medication that he is required to take daily.

Vincent said an autopsy was scheduled on Thursday, but it appears that the death was accidental.
