The body of missing Casey, IL resident Daniel James "D.J." Roscom was found Saturday afternoon.

Members of a search party that had been organized to look for Roscom, who had been missing since the night of March 18, made the discovery on an overpass embankment of Interstate 70 and route 49, just north of Casey. Police have confirmed the body was that of Roscom.

Foul play is not suspected. Police say there was no obvious indication of a cause of death, and an autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Casey Police say the area where Roscom's body was found, near the Casey McDonald's, had been searched before, but that tall grass and overgrowth could have prevented the body from being spotted. There was no indication as to how long Roscom's body had been there.

The investigation into Daniel Roscom's death is continuing.
