A New Prague man who had been missing for two weeks was found dead in a vehicle Saturday.
Anthony James Slavik, 31, hadn't been seen since July 18. Family and friends were concerned for him because he had a condition that required medical treatment and was waiting for a kidney transplant, reports noted.
Police had issued a public appeal for information regarding his whereabouts in the days after he went missing from his home.
The LeSeur County Sheriff's Office confirmed to WCCO and the Star Tribune that Slavik was found dead Saturday night in his vehicle, which was parked in the Chadderdon State Wildlife Management Area about 20 miles from his home.
Josh Erickson, who knew Slavik and had been posting updates about the search for him, wrote on Facebook Sunday morning that Slavik was found dead, saying "he had made his peace and now he's coming home."
Hikers called the sheriff's office Saturday at 5:56 p.m. to report a person who was dead inside a vehicle, WCCO notes. Officials say foul play is not suspected.
