WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) — Police have confirmed that a body found in a wooded area in Westminster was that of a 27-year-old man whom authorities had been searching for.
State police said Friday that the man has been identified as Joshua White of Westminster. White’s relatives had reported him missing on Monday. His body was found Thursday morning during a search for him in a wooded area behind his home.
An autopsy has been conducted, but toxicology and other tests aren’t complete and police don’t yet know the cause and manner of death. Police say there were no obvious signs of foul play.
