Police say a man called to report the body around 8:15 p.m. Wednesday. He said told them he was searching the wooded area looking for a drone he'd lost when he came upon the body. 

Once at the scene, officers say they found the body of what appeared to be a white male in a "severe state of decomposition." A deputy coroner also responded to the scene.
