SPRINGFIELD, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Springfield Police say they have found the body of a missing man.

Friday, police say they were called to the area of the 3700 block of E. 5th Street. They say a body was found in an overgrown vegetative swamp area.

Police identified the remains as those of Felton Warren. Warren had been missing for exactly three months.

In April, family members say Warren walked out of his home and wasn't heard from again. A week later, Springfield Police, Bay County Search and Rescue, human remains dogs, and volunteers searched Springfield, but didn't find him.

This case is still under investigation. Warren's body has been turned over to the Medical Examiner's Office.
