ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) — The body of a North Carolina man reported missing last week has been found floating in a river in Asheville.

Police say the body of 39-year-old Anthony Sawyer of Asheville was found by a couple who were fishing around 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Capt. Tim Splain says the body appeared to have been in the water for at least a day. Splain says there was no immediate indication of foul play.

Sawyer’s wife had said she last saw her husband late Friday night.

An autopsy is planned this week.
