Authorities in Osage County found a body of a man in Bird Creek on Saturday several miles south of tornado-ravaged Barnsdall.
Since the May 6 tornado, crews have been searching for 81-year-old Kenneth Wayne Hogue, who went missing during the twister in Barnsdall.
Sheriff Eddie Virden tells our partners at News On 6 the body matches Hogue's description.
Hogue is the only person still missing from the Barnsdall tornado. The EF-4 storm killed 53-year-old Rhonda Hayman.
