CULLMAN, AL (WBRC) - A sad ending to the search for a missing man in Cullman.  Searchers found 76-year-old Eric Richardson's dead body near some train tracks in the southern part of the city. The county coroner says he appears to have fallen and broken his neck.

The family reported him missing Monday.  They said he suffered from Alzheimer's disease.
