Missing Longview man found in ditch
Longview, Texas (Longview News-Journal) — Family members of a blind Longview man missing since this past weekend were saddened Friday after hearing his body had been discovered, but said they were relieved to start the grieving process.
“We know where he is now,” said Danette Pierce, a cousin of 30-year-old Gaylon Cortez Bradley. Family members said police told them Bradley’s body was found about 4 p.m. Friday in a ditch in the 1200 block of Pegues Place in North Longview.
“I was praying today that he would be found, that he would come home. Not two hours later here we are,” she said.
Children practicing in the soccer fields across from the Longview Christian School Early Learning Center found Bradley’s body, said Longview police spokeswoman Kristie Brian.
