Worth County-- Heat may be to blame for the death of a Worth County man missing for four days.

Fifty-two-year-old Marion Coppage was last seen Thursday. His family spent several days looking for him and found his body on Monday in a field near Spring Flats and Massey Airport Road.

His son, Jason Coppage went up in a plane to look for him because the family felt they weren't getting much assistance from local law enforcement.

"When I called the city police department on Saturday, they didn't even know anything about it. In my opinion, they should have known something when the Sheriff's Department did," says his son Jacob Coppage.

"Jacob looked very hard. He never gave up, never gave up," says Marion's sister-in-law Dawn Strickland.

The family says that Coppage was stranded in the field when his vehicle got stuck. He had no cell phone to call for help and likely died of heat exhaustion.
