ISSAQUENA COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Vicksburg authorities have found the body of a man who was previously reported missing by his parents.

20-year-old Mason B. Cummings was reported missing Sunday morning, on reports that he hadn't been heard from since Friday, May 4.

Cummings' friends went looking for him and found an area where they believe his 2012 Honda Accord went off the road. 

According to Corporal Kervin Stewart, Warren County sheriff's and the Mississippi Highway Patrol were dispatched to Highway 465 around 7:25 p.m. on reports of his vehicle being submerged underwater.

A dive team arrived on scene shortly after and located the vehicle, where they learned that Cummings was inside and died from injuries sustained in the crash.

This is an ongoing investigation.
