BRYAN, TEXAS - The Brazos County Sheriff's office confirms a body was dumped on the side of the road in Bryan Friday morning, after a hearse was stolen.
Around 5:30 Friday morning police responded to the McDonald's on Highway 21 in Bryan for a report of a stolen vehicle. Apparently, a funeral home employee left the hearse with a body inside unattended, when a suspect got in and drove away.

The body was recovered and returned to the funeral home, and police continued to search for the hearse.
After receiving a tip around 12 p.m. DPS located the vehicle on Macey Road and FM 974.
Two people are being questioned.
