A Lenoir County man who was reported missing over the weekend was found dead early Monday morning. Authorities used a church parking lot as a command center, as they searched for 34-year-old Leslie King of Neuse Road. King was reported missing early Sunday morning after leaving the home of an acquaintance on an all terrain vehicle. Deputies, volunteer fire fighters, state troopers and the Lenoir County emergency management department searched the heavily wooded area near Neuse Road. A helicopter was used for the search, and officials spotted the over turned ATV in a ditch. King's body was pinned under the four-wheeled vehicle. Major Chris Hill with the Lenoir County sheriff's department says foul play has been ruled out in this accident.
