Henry County Police have confirmed the discovery of a body near the home of the missing man, Timothy Osborne, who vanished 12 days ago.

Kelly Osborne, the missing man's wife, said searchers were looking in the woods along Wolf Creek Monday morning, hoping to find a sign that he was still alive.

Nobody had seen Timothy since Feb. 6 and family members said his dementia had grown worse recently.

In another area, just a couple miles away from where Kelly Osborne was searching, the call came in of a body found at the Tussahaw Reservoir.

Police confirm the body had been discovered in the lake near where some of the missing man's clothing, a hat and one of his shoes, was found on Wednesday.

In a Facebook post, Kelly said she has lost her best friend, soul mate, husband, and heart.

"Please keep my family in your prayers while we try to figure out how to go through life without Tim," she wrote. "I love him with every breath in my body. I’ll miss him until my last breath."

Officials have not yet released information on how or when Timothy Osborne died.

A Facebook page that had been set up to coordinate search efforts had now been dedicated to condolences for Tim Osborne's family.
