Bedford County officials say the body of a Manchester, Tenn., man was found almost two weeks after he last was seen alive.

A sheriff's official quoted by the Shelbyville Times-Gazette said the body of 59-year-old Jimmy Olmstead was found Sunday afternoon by a man scouting places to hunt deer.

The remains were about 500 yards from a pond where Olmstead had been fishing.

Sheriff's department Capt. Tony Barrett said the death is being treated as a homicide. Barrett said Olmstead's wallet was intact.
