BAXTER SPRINGS, Kan. (AP) — Authorities are trying to find two acquaintances of a man whose body was found along a southeast Kansas road.

The Joplin Globe ( ) reports that Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves is describing the death of 64-year-old James McFarland as "suspicious." His body was found April 30 near Baxter Springs.

A 55-year-old woman who is believed to have had a romantic relationship with McFarland and her 21-year-old son are being sought.

Groves says McFarland is believed to have been with the mother and son at a campground in Pawnee, Oklahoma, in mid-April. All three are believed to be homeless. Investigators are trying to figure out how McFarland got to southeast Kansas.
