The search for a local missing man is over. Jimmy Overstreet, 67, was found dead under an overpass in Forney earlier this week. He had been missing since Nov. 14, 2018. Jeff Haines with the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office said Overstreet was last seen after being dropped off in Mesquite by an acquaintance.

“Mr. Overstreet was reported missing Nov. 16, 2018, at that time he was placed on TCIC/NCIC as a missing person,” Haines said. “On Dec. 4, 2018, we received a call from the Dallas County Medical Examiner they had identified a deceased John Doe as Mr. Overstreet.”

Haines said the medical examiner stated that he was identified after they ran his fingerprints.

“Additionally, the medical examiner stated that the cause of death is pending toxicology tests,” Haines said.

More details about his death will be released as they become available. Family members were notified Tuesday.
