Since he was reported missing Wednesday afternoon, people all over South Central Kentucky have been trying to find 79-year-old Raymond Hunt.

Hunt suffered from Alzheimer's Disease and was last seen driving his truck.

Early Friday afternoon, authorities found Hunt's body and truck, both in the Green River near Morgantown. It appears Hunt drove off an embankment, causing his truck to become partly submerged in the water.

Police say it looks like Hunt survived the impact, and may have tried to back his truck out of the water. Hunt apparently was able to free himself, but was not able to get out of the water. Investigators found Hunt's body nearly 80 feet from his truck.

The body will undergo an autopsy Saturday in Louisville to determine the exact cause of death.
