Body of man missing since Sunday found at Natchez State Park


NATCHEZ, Mississippi — A man missing since Sunday night has been found dead in the woods near Natchez State Park.

The Natchez Democrat ( ) reports 35-year-old Travis Todd had entered the wooded area Sunday in an apparent plan to spend the afternoon exploring. He'd made plans with his wife for later in the evening, and had left without his cellphone.

Adams County Emergency Management Director Robert Bradford said Todd's body was found Wednesday around noon about 788 yards from the campground.

A family friend said Tuesday Todd may have been in a confused state at the time of his disappearance because of an injury he had suffered from receiving a strong electrical shock in 2012.

Bradford said the matter remains under investigation.
