The medical examiner's office has positively identified the body found in the woods of northern Cherokee County as missing veteran Roger Quinn, according to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office.

Quinn's body was found July 29, more than two weeks after he went missing. His mother, Darlene Allensworth, told News On 6 her son had PTSD from serving in Afghanistan and liked to get out on his own in nature.

Hunters found his backpack with clothing and cell phone inside, and his body was found about a mile away. 

The family would like to invite veterans and other members of the public to attend Roger Quinn's memorial service at 10 a.m. Thursday, August 2, 2018, at Greenhill Funeral Home in Sapulpa. The address is 400 East Teel Road.

A graveside service with military honors will all take place on the grounds of the funeral home.
