Around 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, sheriff's deputies found the body believed to be that of a missing Air Force Major.
The car was found behind an old antique store on Highway 331 just south of the Sprague town line.
Sheriff D.T. Marshall tells WSFA 12 news the Honda Civic found at the scene matches the description of a car owned by Major William Boettcher.
Major Boettcher has been missing for a week. A body was found inside the vehicle, but has not been identified.
