Posted: Updated:

Richmond Hill Police have identified a body found by city workers on Feb. 20 as Charles Michael Stoyle, 58, of Munhall, Pa.

Relatives say Stoyle was last seen by family members during the week of Jan. 21 when he was dropped off by request at Love's Truck Stop in Richmond Hill.

According to the missing persons report that relatives filed on Feb. 19, Stoyle had intentions of hitchhiking to Jacksonville.

On Feb. 20, city workers picking up trash near I-95 and Ga. Hwy 144 discovered an unidentified body in the ditch and contacted local police.

Richmond Hill Police and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation identified the body as that of Stoyle. An autopsy conducted by the GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta on Friday found no evidence of foul play.
