PRIDES LANDING-(SHOALS INSIDER)- Authorities tell the Shoals Insider they believe the body recovered this morning from the Tennessee River is that of Velcro Pygmie Bassist Jacob Sanders.

Colbert County Sheriff Frank Williamson told members of the press the body had markings, tattoos, and earring gauges consistent with those worn by Jake Sanders of the Velcro Pygmies.

“The body is being transported to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences in Huntsville for positive identification,” said Utley.

A local fisherman stumpled upon the body floating in the water this morning and called police.

The brothers, Jake, 24, and Jim Sanders, 29, were reported missing on March 2, after they didnt return from a fishing trip.

Several agencies have been involved in the search for the two brothers.

Authorities and rescue crews will continue to search for the older brother, Jeremiah “Jim” Sanders, Ricatoni’s General Manager.

***Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sanders family and the whole Velcro Pygmie Family.***
