WASHINGTON COUNTY, Pa. - Investigators have confirmed that a body found Wednesday morning on a farm in Washington County was that of a missing man.
George Pochiba, 88, had been missing since June 10.
Family members said he walked away from his home in Scenery Hill off Route 40.
His daughter, Neva Pochiba-Neizmik, said her dad told her he was going to feed his animals. George Pochiba suffered from Alzheimer's disease and hadn't had a farm or animals for 50 years.
“I really anticipated he would be gravitating toward a farm or field,” said Neva Pochiba-Neizmik.
Officials said a woman was on her tractor in the Daniels Run area when she found the body.
“We believe farm personnel was operating a tractor and doing hay and found the human remains,” said coroner Tim Warco.
Crews and family members had organized several search efforts and even offered a reward for information leading to his whereabouts.
“He was right here, and we weren’t able to help him,” said Neva Pochiba-Neizmik.
