Body found in west Rochester
Police say it's too early to tell if a body found Thursday in a wooded area behind Rochester Mobile Home Park is Jeremiah Mathis, missing from Rochester since May 22.

Shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday a resident of Rochester Mobile Home Court told police someone found something suspicious in the woods. Police determined, upon arrival, it was skeletal remains.

According to Fulton County Sheriff Chris Sailors, the remains were found in a wooden area off West 13th Street. He said the remains appeared to be the body of a man, but he couldn't be sure.

"Really, all we've got is a John or Jane Doe," Sailors said.

Fulton County Coroner Darin Beeker said late Friday he believed the body was that of a male.
