A Laurel County man who was missing for five days was found dead at the bottom of a cliff Monday morning.
Family members found Arther Bentley, 46, at the base of a cliff about 1/2 mile from his home on Bentley Road in East Bernstadt, according to a news release from the Laurel County sheriff's office.
His family last saw Bentley on Aug. 31. He was not reported as missing because he was regularly gone for days at a time, the release said.
Officials think Bentley fell off the cliff at night. Foul play is not suspected.
