A Mississippi man who had been reported missing was found dead over the weekend.

On Saturday, the Walthall County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of a K-9 search team from Brandon, was able to locate 30-year-old Marty Martin, who was last seen at his home on November 18.

Authorities searched an area in the 180 block of Mississippi Highway 27 South. Shortly after the search began, the police dog made a positive alert on a densely wooded tract of land near the area where Martin was last seen.

A short time later, the search team came upon the missing man, who was deceased. No foul play is suspected and a thorough investigation was conducted by officers.

“Our deepest condolences go out to the Martin family in their time of grief. We ask that you continue to keep the family in your thoughts and prayers and continue to show them the love and support that Walthall County has always had,”  the Walthall County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook.
