The McCurtain County Sheriff's Office believes they have located the body of a 41-year-old Broken Bow man who was reported missing on July 5th.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says the body, believed to be Harold Jones was found at the bottom of an old well about 15 miles north of Idabel on Thursday.

The body was recovered Thursday night. OSBI said it will be transported to the medical examiner's office for an autopsy to determine how he died.
