UPDATE: Missing man found dead behind Gulfport store

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Officials aren’t ready to say who he is, but the man found dead behind a Gulfport Dollar General was reported missing just one day earlier.

“Friends and family have been out looking for him, and they got information that this may have been his last location,” said Sgt. Griffin. “They came here and were a part of locating the subject.”

The man’s body was discovered Tuesday afternoon behind the store located in the 1400 block of Creosote Road. Gulfport police are still investigating to determine exactly how he died, but Sgt Griffin said it doesn’t appear any foul play was involved.
