The body of Celestino Rodriguez, the man who was reported missing back on August 3rd, has been recovered just northwest of Abernathy, Texas.

The body was located at around 10:45 p.m. Thursday night (August 15th) in a field near County Road 315 and County Road K, according to Lubbock Police Department Captain Ray Mendoza.

An autopsy was performed, and at around 5 p.m. Friday, a release was sent out confirming the body's identity.
