SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg County deputies say the search for a missing man has ended.

Deputies said Joel Keith Bishop, 58, was last seen on March 30 at his home on Thackston Drive.

Deputies said Bishop left the home in his 1989 2-door black Nissan truck with SC license plate CIK-439.

Bishop’s wife reported him missing on April 1 and informed deputies that he suffers from depression and anxiety.

On Tuesday, the coroner confirmed Bishop's body had been located on an extremely rural part of a property on Peachtree Road near the NC South Carolina line. He said evidence on scene is consistent with him being in that location since the time he was first reported missing.

The coroner said other evidence suggests Bishop intended on taking his own life.
