The remains of Dolly Robert Twitty, 76, were discovered Friday afternoon about one-half mile south of where Twitty was last seen on July 16, Rutherford County Sheriff Chris Francis said.

Francis said the remains and clothes matching the description of those he had, were found in a deep thicket not far from his home.

"There was just so much undergrowth here," Francis said.

Officers notified Twitty's family Friday after the remains were found.
