Missing man’s body found in pond


LIVINGSTON, La. (AP) — The body of a Holden man last seen nearly two weeks ago has been pulled from a pond off James Chapel Road between Albany and Holden.

Lori Steele, a spokeswoman for the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office, says 72-year-old Robert Holmes was found inside his submerged pick-up truck Thursday.

She says foul play is not suspected in his death, which appeared to have been caused by the single-vehicle crash.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2ilcKTA) Holmes had been missing since Dec. 9.
