BRUNSWICK, VA (WWBT) -

A man who went missing from Brunswick County last week has been found dead in a creek.

William Beasley, 52, was last seen on January 7. He was reported missing two days later.

Authorities say fishermen found Beasley's truck submerged in the creek. His body was later recovered by a dive team.

State Police launched a helicopter search for Beasley, flying within a five mile radius of his Brunswick home.

According to Brunswick Sheriff Brian Roberts, fishermen found Beazley's body three miles south of Route 58. First responders reported no obvious signs of foul play.

An autopsy examination scheduled for Tuesday will determine the cause of death.
