---- — MIDDLETOWN, Ind. (AP) — A body found in central Indiana wooded area has been identified as that of a 21-year-old man who was reported missing in August.

The Henry County Sheriff's Department says a hunter spotted the body on Sunday in a wooded area in the northwestern part of the county. The Courier-Times reports authorities used dental records to confirm the body as Jordan Bragg of Middletown.

Henry County Coroner Stephen Hacker says Bragg's death appears to be a suicide and no signs of foul play were found in the area about 15 miles southwest of Muncie.

Bragg was last seen Aug. 11 after having an argument with his girlfriend. Bragg's body was found about a mile from his home.
