A man who was missing for several hours Saturday in the Brumfield Lane area of Jessamine County has been found dead.
The Jessamine County Coroner says 56-year-old Danny Reynolds was riding his horse with some friends Saturday. Officials say Reynolds and his horse tried to cross a stream, but the horse likely slipped, causing Reynolds to fall off.
The horse was later found, safe, but not Reynolds.
Rescuers found him about a half-a-mile down stream around 9:00 Sunday morning.
The official cause of death is drowning, and the coroner says bumps and bruises on Reynolds are consistent with falling off a horse.
