A man who died in a motorcycle accident on State Road 56 has been identified as Jose M. Fajardo Sola, 20, of Salisbury, N.C.

Officials found Fajardo Sola's body down an embankment east of Brooksburg on Monday. Authorities believe he had been involved in a motorcycle accident a few weeks prior.

Sheriff John Wallace said Fajardo Sola had last been seen heading east on State Road 56 on Sept. 26 and he was reported missing the following day when he did not show up for work.

Police found Fajardo Sola's body near the wreckage of a motorcycle. It is believed he left the road, went down the embankment and struck a tree.

Funeral arrangements are pending at Lytle Funeral Chapel.
