    GREENWOOD, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say the body of a missing fisherman has been found in Lake Jack Nolen near Greenwood.

    Greenwood Police Chief Will Dawson told reporters that the body of 62-year-old Stephen Whitson of Greenwood was found near the boat dock about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. Dawson says foul play is not suspected - but the body is being sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab in Little Rock for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

    Whitson's family reported him missing about 8 p.m. Tuesday and authorities found his trailer and boat at the lake later Tuesday night.
