CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A manhunt is underway in Cumberland County, Tenn. for a man and his mother in connection with the murder of a man in Florida.

Mary Boswell, 47, and her son, Larry Craig Whitworth, 29, are suspected in the murder of a man whose body was found in a pond on his property behind his house Wednesday morning.

The victim was last seen by his family on Tuesday, May 13, but the Columbia County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office says Boswell and Whitworth were nowhere to be seen that day, and the missing man's truck was gone.

Then, Wednesday morning, the Hamilton County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office called CCSO about a wallet belonging to the victim that was found on the side of Highway 41, according to a CCSO release. His body was found in his pond about two hours later.
