The St. Joseph News-Press reports 46-year-old Michael Steeby of Savannah was last seen around 1:30 p.m. Jan. 4 at his home. He was reported missing two days later, sparking a search by local police and numerous other law enforcement agencies.

The Doniphan County coroner has requested an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
