CUSHING, Oklahoma -- The family of a missing Cushing man believes the body of a man discovered at Keystone Dam on Wednesday is John Baker.

Baker's daughter, Carmen Matherly, say her prayers have been answered. Friends and family prayed at a recent prayer vigil to bring Matherly's dad home and with the discovery on January 26, 2011, she believes God has answered her prayer.

The state Medical Examiner's Office is using dental records to confirm the ID.  John Baker, 66, was reported missing in November 2010.

It was Matherly who found Baker's abandoned truck near I-244 and Memorial shortly thereafter.

Baker's family is still offering a $15,000 reward that leads to the arrest and conviction of whoever killed John Baker.

If you have that information, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS.
