MARION, Ind. (WFFT) — Police say they have found a Fort Wayne man who went missing late last month dead on Monday evening inside his vehicle.
Officers with the Marion Police Department responded to the parking lot of Walmart, 3240 S. Western Ave., for a welfare check of a person in a red pickup truck, that he recognized, was parked just after 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Police say the man who requested the welfare check said he believed the truck belonged to 59-year-old Glenn Henry, who is a co-worker of his at the Fort Wayne General Motors Plant.
On Feb. 12, the Allen County Sheriff's Department asked the public for help searching for Henry, who reportedly did not had any contact with his family since Jan. 29.
MPD says the man reported that while he was driving in the Walmart parking lot he recognized a 2001’ Chevrolet, S10 truck, red in color, that was parked.
Officers said the truck was locked and they saw a silhouette of a body inside.
Police say they were able to use an unlock tool to open the door to confirm a body was present in the vehicle.
The Grant County coroner confirmed the body inside the truck was Glenn Henry.
Investigators say they have requested to view surveillance video of the Walmart parking lot in order to help determine how long Henry’s truck had been parked at the Marion Walmart.
An autopsy for Henry is pending scheduling at the end of the week at the Forensic Center in Fort Wayne.
