Body Found Friday Fits Description Of Missing Soldier

Authorities say a body discovered in the Cumberland River fits the description of a missing Fort Campbell Soldier.

Officials say they found the body Friday morning just down stream from Clarksville.

They will not confirm if the body is that of Specialist Jessiah Jameson. Officials say they conducted an autopsy Saturday morning at Fort Campbell and Jameson's family has been called to the base.

Jameson disappeared on November 16th, just two days after returning to Montgomery County on leave from Iraq.

Officials are not saying if foul play is suspected.
