WARSAW, Mo. (AP) — The body of a Columbia man has been found in Benton County in west-central Missouri.

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday that 28-year-old Cody Garrett of Columbia was reported missing by his mother about a week earlier. Deputies were able to trace his phone to his car, which was parked on a street in Warsaw. Garrett’s body was found about a half-mile away, near a bike trail.

A medical examiner ruled the cause of death to be homicide. No arrests have been made.
