GREENSVILLE COUNTY, Va. — A missing sheriff's deputy was found dead in a creek this morning after what appears to be a weather-related crash.

Percy Lee House III, 52, had been missing since Friday morning. He was found in his car in a creek off Massie Branch Road, according to a news release from the Virginia Sheriff's Association.

State police are investigating but icy road conditions appear to be the cause of the crash, the release said.
