NOTE: WIS does not normally report suicides. Because we initially reported this case as a missing person's case at the request of the sheriff's office, we felt it was important to update the story.

NEWBERRY COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A Clemson University student who disappeared after visiting family over the holiday weekend has committed suicide, according to the Newberry County Sheriff's Office.

22-year-old Gary Thinel Bishop was last seen Sunday morning around 2:30 a.m. His family called the sheriff's office when they could not contact him after he left the residence at 870 Quaker Road, investigators said.

Sheriff Lee Foster says Bishop was found dead on Tuesday in Saluda County. Investigators believe he killed himself.
