ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) – A body found in a pickup truck pulled from the Missouri River has been identified as that of an Atchison man missing since late December.

Sixty-nine-year-old Garry Clyde Sandy had last been seen Dec. 28 at an Atchison convenience store. A statewide Silver Alert was issued for him Jan. 10, a day after co-workers at a Wal-Mart store reported him missing.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told the St. Joseph News-Press (http://bit.ly/1dJhdRm) that someone walking near the downtown of the northeast Kansas community spotted the pickup truck in the river Sunday. Sandy’s identity was confirmed Monday.

Wilson says there are no indications of foul play, but authorities are awaiting results of an autopsy. It’s also not clear how long the truck had been in the water.
