HOHENWALD, TN (WSMV) -

Officials confirm the body of a Lewis County man reported missing earlier this month has been recovered.

James Skelton, 52, was last seen on April 11 at his home in Hohenwald, and family said he was without his medication for diabetes.

Skelton's truck was discovered late Tuesday night in the Buffalo River, and that helped lead authorities to Skelton's body nearby Wednesday.

Hohenwald Police Sgt. Earl Taylor said the cause of death is under investigation.
