INWOOD, W.Va. - The body of a man who had been missing for nearly a month was found Wednesday morning in a wooded area behind his home, with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.
James "Jim" Amster, 52, was last heard from when he called his mother March 24. Last Friday, officers with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department issued a press release asking for the public's help in finding Amster.
Amster was not wanted by police but officers were seeking help with finding him because his family members were worried, Cpl. Brendan Hall said.
