Body of missing man found in Bedford County woods

BELL BUCKLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Searchers in the woods near Bell Buckle have found the body of a man who had been missing for three days.

According to the Shelbyville Times-Gazette (http://bit.ly/13Bj35R ), the body of 53-year-old David Cunningham was discovered Friday morning in an area where Cunningham was known to like to sit.

Bedford County Sheriff Randall Boyce said there does not appear to be foul play in the death of Cunningham, who was from Murfreesboro. His family said Cunningham had quit taking medication prescribed for him.
