The Wheeling Police Department says that a body that was found behind a building could be a missing man from Moundsville.

Frank Holmes, who was reported missing on December 28, 2019, was last seen in the Shortcreek area.

Now detectives with the Wheeling Police Department say the body that was discovered behind a Center Wheeling building could be Holmes.

The body was originally discovered on January 10 when two people came across the body in the area of 22nd and Chapline Streets around 10:20 a.m.

Wheeling Police Department Public Information Officer Philip Stahl said that detectives will not know for certain until they receive a full report from the medical examiner.
