ERIE, Pa. (AP) - A detective who was investigating a western Pennsylvania man's disappearance happened upon the missing man's body during an afternoon jog through a field.
Police in Millcreek Township, just outside Erie, say 25-year-old Aaron Nolan had been missing since Jan. 16.
The township detective discovered the body Sunday while jogging in the field near the missing man's apartment complex. The body had been covered in knee-deep snow that was melting as temperatures rose over the weekend.
The Erie County Coroner says it appears Nolan died of hypothermia or related causes, but more tests are needed.
