FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Police in Washington say a body found in a cardboard box along Interstate 70 was that of man reported missing four days earlier and they are looking for a Hyattsville man in connection with the death.

The Metropolitan Police Department says the body is that of 36-year-old Jacobo Vazquez who was reported missing Friday and found near Frederick on Tuesday. The Maryland medical examiner’s office says Vazquez was shot to death.

Police say they have issued an arrest warrant for 34-year-old Marvin Palencia of Hyattsville. They say he drives a 2007 light green or grey Honda minivan with Maryland tags spelling out an approximation of his last name — PALNCIA. He is considered armed and dangerous.
