Authorities believe they've found the body of the Bryan native killed in a plane crash in Afghanistan.

Mark Humphries was on-board the Afghan airliner than crashed into the mountains near Kabul in January. Harsh weather conditions hampered search efforts, but Tuesday, the body believed to be Humphries was recovered.

DNA tests are being conducted, but the family said they are 90 percent sure it is Mark. His brother, Chris, who is also in Afghanistan working on a highway project, will bring the body back to the US when those tests are complete.
