A post from the Telfair County Sheriff's Office says a body was found while police were searching for a missing man, Tommy James Hulett.

The search began Saturday and investigators are working to identify the deceased.

Telfair County Sheriff Chris Steverson has confirmed that the search for Hulett is now suspended.

He says the body was found a quarter mile away from Hulett's residence on Misty Lane.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation is on the scene and Steverson says right now it doesn't look like any obvious signs of foul play, but it's too early too tell.

An autopsy will be performed by the GBI to determine the cause of death.
