Body of Missing Man Located

An elderly Bonifay man, missing for three weeks, has been found dead in a pond.

Bonifay Police Chief Ronnie Bennet says the man, 69-year-old William Austin Gurley, wandered away unnoticed from the Happy Acres Living Facility in Bonifay on December 8.

A search of the area failed to turn up any trace of the man, but he was found in a pond about a mile away Wednesday morning.

The investigating is still underway and the cause of death has not been officially determined yet. An autopsy will be performed.
