UPDATE: LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A body found in a creek in the 1200 Block of Pegues Place on Friday has been identified.

Police say it is 32-year-old Gaylon Bradley. Mr. Bradley's family reported him missing on February 12. They told police he was last seen on February 9.

Autopsy results are pending. If anyone has information please call the Longview Police Department at 903-237-1199 or Gregg County Crime Stoppers at 903-236-7867.

Longview police say 10-year-old members of a soccer team were practicing in this field in east central Longview when the ball rolled into the creek.

Police say as they were looking for it, they found the body.

When investigators showed up, they quickly blocked off the area, but members of Bradley's family were waiting in the wings for answers.

They say police told them it was their loved one.

Bradley's Aunt Debra Relleford says Bradley has a grandmother who lives just a few blocks away from this park, and he was in this neighborhood often.
