Body of missing Jasper man found


The search for a missing Jasper man has ended with the discovery of his body.

Jasper District 1 City Councilman Alton Scott has confirmed to 12news that the body of Alfred Wright, 28, of Jasper, has been located north of Highway 87 near Coussans Road, the same area where he was believed to have gone missing.

Scott told us he was found about 200 yards northwest of the second cattle guard wearing only his underwear, a sock, a shoe and had his cell phone in his sock. Scott said he was unsure as to whether there were signs of foul play and would not speculate as to a cause of death. 

Wright was last seen Nov 7 at a package store in Hemphill. The parents of the 2003 graduate of Jasper High School were notified by his wife to go to the store to pick him up. When they went to the store, he was not there. They found a trail of his clothes, his scrubs and a sock near that same area.

A witness told the parents she saw him walking in the direction of a nearby subdivision.
