LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) — Police in northwest Missouri are investigating whether a body found in a portable toilet near a school is that of a missing Liberty man.

Thirty-year-old Chad Rogers is an experienced marathon runner who disappeared after leaving home for a run Monday night. Hundreds of friends and volunteers have searched for him since then.

Liberty police say a body was found Friday morning in a construction crew’s portable toilet outside a junior high school in the city. They’re working with the Jackson County medical examiner for a positive identification and the cause of death.

Rogers is a former youth minister at a Jefferson City church. Family members say he’s been a stay-at-home dad since moving into his parents’ home with his wife and 1-year-old son after returning recently to Liberty.
