Richmond Co. deputies search for missing man

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

UPDATE:

Columbia County coroner Harriett Garrison said there are no signs of foul play yet in the death of John Adams.

His body was sent to Atlanta today for an autopsy.

Authorities said they are not investigating his death as a homicide yet. They also told fox 54 nothing suspicious was found in the vehicle.
