Posted:

EPHRAIM, Wis. – Door County Sheriff's Department officials confirm the body found near Ephriam is that of a missing Fox Valley doctor, according to WBAY-TV in Green Bay.

A .22 caliber gun was found at the scene, WBAY reports.

Authorities say a K-9 search team found human remains in the Town of Liberty Grove Wednesday afternoon near some trees in an uninhabited area. 

Sheriff's deputies and the state crime lab investigated after getting a search warrant for the property.

Sheriff's investigators say clothing and personal items found with the remains lead them to believe the body is that of Dr. Jeffrey Whiteside, of Grand Chute, missing for about three weeks.
