MCLENNAN COUNTY (July 29, 2012)—A body found in a wooded area near a reservoir could be that of Kirk Kuykendall, 35, of Moody, who was last seen on July 21 at the house of a friend in Bruceville-Eddy, McLennan County sheriff’s officials said.
He was reported missing just after midnight last Tuesday morning.
McLennan County Sheriff's Capt. Kenneth Vanek said a resident discovered the body Friday evening in a wooded area near a reservoir on Shady Shores Drive in Bruceville-Eddy near the home where Kuykendall was last seen.
Authorities said Kuykendall told his friend he was going to sleep in his truck, but when the friend later went to check, he wasn't there.
Kuykendall's cell phone was found inside the pickup, Vanek said.
Vanek said the body the body was too decomposed to make a positive identification.
Deputies have found no evidence of foul play, Vanek said.
The body was sent to Dallas for an autopsy.
Kuykendall's daughter says the family is now planning a memorial service.
