Korean War Soldier to Be Buried in Lynchburg Decades After He Went Missing

Lynchburg, VA - Hundreds of people are starting to gather in Lynchburg Thursday to honor a Korean War soldier.

Sergeant Charles Scott's casket arrived in Lynchburg Tuesday, more than 60 years after he went missing during the war.

Scott's family learned in July that DNA samples they gave the Army matched an unidentified body buried in a cemetery in Hawaii.

At 1:30 p.m., the hearse, family and hundreds of motorcycles will leave Tharp Funeral Home on Breezewood Drive.

The procession will move down 501 South to Fort Ave, ending at Fort Hill Memorial Park.

There, Sgt. Scott will be buried with full military honors at a service starting at 2 p.m.
