A Buchanan man missing for more than a week has been found dead after his vehicle drove off an embankment near Phillip Road in Niles Township.

The Berrien County Sheriff’s Department is reporting that Terry Lynn Worsham, 51, was found near the bank of the St. Joseph River.

A preliminary investigation found that Worsham’s vehicle drove off a steep embankment and became stuck. Worsham was unable to get to the top of the riverbank, according the sheriff’s department.

Buchanan Police have notified next of kin and an autopsy will be performed to confirm the cause of death.

Worsham had been missing since Nov. 21 after leaving the Tavern Bar in Niles in the early morning hours, according to the Buchanan Police Department.
