    Yeah. I had been on hold 15 minutes when I saw the post that they already had enough. Glad to be part of this community. Hope to be faster next time. Maybe we need to invest in a bat signal!

    Vernon's body might have been found. No confirmation yet.

    PRICHARD, AL (WALA) -
    Family members of Vernon Cox find strength through prayer. The 39-year-old disappeared three weeks ago.

    ďMy world is falling apart - just the waiting part, trying to figure out if it's him or not it's the worst feeling ever,Ē Vernon's wife Jamie Cox said.

    This afternoon, a survey crew discovered a body floating in Eightmile Creek.

    Oh, I have seen and read so many not-positive crime victim family stories on ID Investigation and in the news about Prichard before say, 2003. I hope there is real improvement in police/community relations.

    I looked every way I know how and could not find any updated info about the decomposing body found in Eight Mile Creek on 10/5/15. Nothing new on Mr. Cox, either.

    His remains have been identified. Cause of death has not been determined, but LE is not treating the death as a homicide. Toxicology reports are pending.

    RIP, Vernon.
