NEW INFO: Body Found In Beaufort County

WITN News has confirmed a body was found in Beaufort County. It is believed to be the body of a man missing since May 30, but there is no official identification yet.

Authorities say the body was found Thursday night on Little Egypt Road in Blounts Creek.

Family members of missing Beaufort County man Glen McCullough Jr. tell WITN they believe the body is that of their relative, but authorities say they have not made a positive identification at this time.

34-year-old McCullough, of Chocowinity, was last seen May 30. He was reported missing June 1. (A photo is below.)

Wednesday, $1000 was offered for information confirming McCullough's location. The sheriff's office told WITN News that they were looking into all possibilities, including that McCullough may have be endangered.

Now there is up to a $1000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in McCullough's case, which is being treated as a homicide investigation.

Here is Friday's press release from the Beaufort County sheriff's office:

"On June 1, 2009, the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a missing person. The report indicated that Glen McCullough Jr., age 34, of Choco Village Road in Chocowinity N.C. had not been seen or heard from since May 30, 2009.

An autopsy has been scheduled to begin the process of positive identification and cause of death determination.

The Sheriff’s Office is treating the case as a homicide investigation. If you have any information on the death of Glen McCullough Jr. or if you have seen or talked to him on or after May 30, 2009, please call the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office at (252)946-7111 or Beaufort County Crime Stoppers at (252)974-6400.

    I don't listen to the news much and just found out about this. I shed tears for his family and his life to be cut short. I went to school with them both, and graduated with Lynelle. I can not imagine what would drive a person to do such a terrible crime!! I cry for you both and your families. Rest in peace Glenn!

    Indeed this is a sad situation. You have small children that will be without their father for the rest of their lives and they are so young at that. I hope that the killers or killer is bought to justice. Charmaine and Jaylen, head your head up and be strong. But I am even more concerned but the language and verbage that some have chosen to use. My people, you never know who will be reading these messages, so please stop using the text message abbrevation and please, please reread what you wrote before you click submit. Some of these articles look like a short version of EBONICS! McCullough Family, keep your head up and God will do the rest. RIP Glenn!

    We need a new sheriff department-one that will be patrolling in the choco-village neighborhood. The only times they come down here is when they got a paper to arrestt someone. What kind of sheriff department iz that?
