    A body found near a creek in rural Anna has been identified as Jacob Archibald, a 40-year-old man missing since Sunday.

    Anna police said Archibald was found by his sister at about 10:30 a.m. She, and a number of other family members, had been actively searching for him since he was reported missing on Sunday.

    According to police, Archibald's wife reported him missing when when he disappeared in the evening after apparently making suicidal statements.

    Though his cause of death will be determined by the Collin County Medical Examiner's Office, police said it appears Archibald did not take his own life, but that he may have slipped and fallen about 8 feet into the creek where he hit his head on a rock.
