TUCSON, Ariz. -- A possible break in the case of the missing California doctor who left a treatment facility near Catalina.

Pinal County sheriff's deputies were called to the Sierra Tucson treatment facility where a body was found nearby.

The body looked to have been discomposing for some weeks now and authorities aren't sure yet if it's the body of missing California Doctor Kenneth Witlack.

"We just don't have the ability to look at that person and say yes this is indeed who we think it is," said Elias Johnson from Pinal County.

Pinal County handed over the identification process for the man to the Pima County Medical Examiner.

They expect a result in the next two days.
