MENDENHALL, Miss. (WLBT-TV) — The body of a man found in a wrecked car submerged in a Mississippi creek has been identified as a missing father.
WLBT-TV reports Robert Curtis was found dead Monday just off U.S. Route 49 in Mendenhall. The Simpson County coroner says the vehicle appeared to have been there for about a week.
Curtis hadn't been seen since April 14 and was reported missing last Thursday.
Lifelong friend Ashton Busby says Curtis had two children and a third child on the way. She remembered him as a fun and outgoing person.
