Union County sheriff's deputies have found a body while they investigate a missing jogger.

Officials are waiting for the medical examiner's office to identify the body found behind a church Monday evening in Lake Park.

The body was found not far from the home of 51-year-old James Martin Hudspeth, who went jogging Monday morning and did not return home.

Family members said Hudspeth did not take his wallet and cellphone. Deputies had started searching Monday afternoon and found the body around 6:30 p.m. behind Faith United Methodist Church.
