COALDALE — Police believe they have closed a missing persons case in Schuylkill County.

According to officials, a family searching for mushrooms found a decomposed body in a wooded area of Coaldale Saturday afternoon.

Police believe the man is Corey Samuels, who disappeared in January.

Investigators made the identification by showing clothing found at the scene to Samuels’ family.

On Sunday, a group of staff and students from Mercyhurst University assisted state police at the scene.

Investigators will try to determine exactly how the 24 year old died, but police do not think foul play is involved.
