Body Found in Crittenden Co. ID'd as Missing Man

CRITTENDEN COUNTY, Ark. - A body found last week at the Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge has been identified as that of a man reported missing nearly three years ago.

WMC-TV in Memphis reports the Crittenden County Sheriff’s Office says the body has been identified as Blake Wood, then 23, who disappeared in Aug. 2014. He was last seen by a friend who reported he got out of her car and ran into the woods.

Wood's cause of death has not yet been determined.

WMC reported in Aug. 2016 that the backyard of a home in Marion had been searched after investigators received a "credible tip" that Wood's body had been buried there.
