UNION, Ky. -- Boone County deputies discovered the body of a man Tuesday who they believe died in a motorcycle crash days earlier. 

A homeowner called the sheriff's office Tuesday morning to report finding a motorcycle down an embankment from his driveway off Hathaway Road. 

Deputies believe 42-year-old Andrew Duell of Union failed to negotiate a curve on Hathaway Road and went over the embankment. They found Duell's remains about 30 yards off the roadway and his 2000 Yamaha motorcycle another 20 yards further. 

Coincidentally, Duell's father reported him missing Monday, saying he hadn't heard from him recently, deputies said. 

Boone County Coroner Missy Rittenger estimated the crash happened sometime in the neighborhood of Friday, March 13.
