MARKED TREE, Ark. – A search for a missing man ended with tragic results Thursday in Poinsett County.

Roger Vick, 66, of Marked Tree, went missing on June 5 at his home on Arkansas 75 South, Poinsett County Chief Deputy Kevin Molder told NEA Report Thursday. His body was found Thursday in a rice field off Poinsett 401. 

“We were searching everything by boat, by four wheeler, by air, and had some people help us with planes,” Molder said. “We found what we believed to be his remains today.”

The remains were sent to the state medical examiner for autopsy.

Vick’s green Hyundai Santa Fe sports utility vehicle was found Wednesday night on the levee between Arkansas 75 and 42, at the Poinsett and Cross County lines, Molder also said.
