Authorities say a Tupelo dentist who had been missing since Sunday has been found dead in Alabama, the victim in an apparent car accident. Dr. Thurmond Beasley was 67.

Beasley was driving home from a visit with relatives in Georgia when the one-vehicle wreck occurred.

A road crew saw his car Thursday while performing work on Interstate 20 near Anniston, Ala., according to a press release from the Tupelo Police Department.

Anniston Coroner Rudy Rooks told The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that Beasley died from blunt force trauma.

Beasley was reported missing by his family after failing to arrive home from the weekend trip.
