The sister of a man who had been missing from Collin County since Nov. 4 found his body in a creek in Anna on Wednesday morning, the Anna Police Department said.
Police were sent to the 2500 block of Taylor Avenue east of U.S. 75 at around 10:30 a.m. regarding the discovery.
The man, identified as 40-year-old Jacob Archibald, was found in the creek bed about 200 yards off the roadway, police posted on Twitter.
The woman and several other family members had been searching for Archibald since he was reported missing by his wife on Nov. 4 after making suicidal statements, police said.

Police do not have an exact cause of death but think Archibald slipped and fell about eight feet into the creek, hitting his head on the way down.
The medical examiner’s office will make a final determination on cause of death.
