A man who was found dead in a crashed car on Memorial Day had been reported missing days earlier. 

Francis J. Pivec, 75, was reported missing May 29 by Henderson Police Department, two days after he had left home to go to a store, possibly in New Prague, according to WCCO-TV

Police asked for the public's assistance to locate him after he wasn't home for his birthday party on Saturday. 

According to a State Patrol crash report, Pivec was driving westbound on Highway 19 east of Nature Center Lane when he went off the road and "down into a ravine not visible from the road."

Pivec was not wearing a seatbelt and died at the scene, according to the State Patrol.

It is not clear when the crash occurred.
