The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 66-year-old David Lee Dotson was found dead Wednesday afternoon in a car in rural Bates County, Mo.
A Silver Alert was issued for Dotson last Thursday after he left his home and didn’t return.
A man who noticed the car parked for several days found the body in a field outside Amsterdam, Mo., about 40 miles south of Overland Park.
Overland Park police said foul play is not suspected. His family said Dotson was an insulin-dependent diabetic.
