Clothing found on body matches missing Kan. man

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- The lawyer for the family of a missing northeast Kansas 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 of Olathe 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.

Cox told The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1h05OEA ) that deputies would not say anything about the cause of 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.
