The body of Jimmy Green was found Friday in the woods near the Village of Lawrence.

His family has been notified.

Van Buren County police continue to investigate Green’s death.

There’s no evidence to indicate foul play at this time, but investigators are waiting for pathology results regarding cause and manner of death.

Green went missing Oct. 7, 2020 from the Village of Lawrence after visiting with friends in the area.

He was last seen on surveillance camera walking west toward a wooded area on that day.

He was described as a "mild-mannered father" who has a form of Bell's Palsy, which gave him a slight speech impediment.

Green was taken to the WMed Department of Forensic Pathology in Kalamazoo for an autopsy.
