After a week of searching, the body of a missing Lafayette County teen was found in the Yocona River Monday afternoon. An autopsy today will confirm the identity and perhaps answer some questions as to what happened to Stephen Tyler Emerick, 19. Family and law enforcement express appreciation for the community’s support during the search. (May 7, 2013, Page 1, 14)
