NEELYTON, Pa. - A body discovered this morning in a wooded area of Huntingdon County has been identified as that of Steven Baird, a Franklin County nursing home executive missing since Jan. 2.

Baird, 33, a resident of Hamilton Township and the human resources director for Menno Haven, was last seen leaving for work on the morning of Jan. 2 in his black 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Police said the cause and manner of death were undetermined, but there was no evidence of foul play.

Huntingdon County Coroner Ron Morder said an autopsy will be performed Friday or Saturday at J.C. Balir Hospital in Huntingdon, Pa.

The vehicle and body were discovered at about 8 a.m., police said. The vehicle was on a logging road in a wooded area off Pa. 641 in Dublin Township and was found by the owner of the property, Morder said.

Baird was hired as human resources director at Menno Haven last summer, according to an official with the retirement community.
