POPLAR BLUFF, MO -  The body of a Poplar Bluff business owner missing since August 12 has been found in the Mark Twain National Forest. 

Steve Woodsmall was last seen leaving the Long John Silver's restaurant in Poplar Bluff, which he co-owned, on August 12, and was reported missing two days later by family members.

Woodsmall's remains were found inside his pick-up truck Sunday afternoon by squirrel hunters in a heavily-forested and remote location within the Mark Twain National Forest, in extreme northwest Ripley County.  Authorities believe the death may have been caused by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but an autopsy has been scheduled.

The death is being jointly investigated by the Ripley County Sheriff's Department, Poplar Bluff Police Department, National Forest Service, Ripley County Coroner and the Missouri Highway Patrol.
