Authorities have confirmed that a Whitley County man, who went missing on Monday, was found dead late Wednesday afternoon not far from his home. 

The Whitley County Emergency Management Director said Richard Martin, 63, of Corbin, rode his ATV into a wooded area Monday morning around 10:30 following an argument with his wife.  He was reported missing that night.

Dozens of volunteers, along with local law enforcement, fire personnel and search and rescue teams searched the area for three days. 

Authorities said Martin's body was eventually found less than two miles from his home in an isolated wooded area near Laurel Lake.

The cause of death hasn't been determined.

An autopsy is scheduled at the State Medical Examiner's Office.

The death is still under investigation.
