WEWOKA, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say a man missing for nearly two weeks has been found dead in Seminole County.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says agents found the body of 32-year-old Nathan Dale Blankenship at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Blankenship had been missing since Feb. 2.

OSBI says a witness helped lead agents to Blankenship's body to an area north of Oklahoma 59 in Seminole County.

Authorities say the state medical examiner will take custody of the body and perform an autopsy to determine the cause of manner of death. The case remains under investigation.
