DE SOTO, KS (KCTV/AP) -

The lawyer for the family of a missing Olathe man says a body found Tuesday matches the description of the man, who has been missing since Sunday.

Attorney Henry Cox says Johnson County sheriff's deputies contacted the family of 22-year-old Brad Cook on Tuesday to confirm what clothing Cook was wearing when he disappeared. Cox says the clothes on the body found in De Soto match what Cook was wearing.

The body was found about 3:30 p.m. in the area of 9500 block of Sunflower Road in DeSoto. A passer-by walking in the area saw the body.

Johnson County Sheriff's Office spokesman Tom Erickson said the case is considered "an unattended death."

A medical examination will be conducted Wednesday.

Cook left his home in Olathe without his cellphone or wallet. His motorcycle was found a few hours later in a strip mall's parking lot in De Soto.

The owner of a motorcycle tire shop near where Cooks's bike was found lit candles Tuesday evening while investigators continued to search for the missing man.

"I live over on 95th Street, and they've been searching around my house. Now they're like two doors up from me. This hits close to home," Bobby Anderton said.
