RENO, Nev. (AP) - Washoe County detectives are investigating the apparent suicide of a Spanish Springs man whose wife has been the target of a search since she was reported missing on Sunday.

Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Harmon said in a statement Tuesday 51-year-old Gerald Muhl had been cooperating in an investigation into the disappearance of his wife before he was found dead Monday morning of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

His wife, Colleen Muhl, last was seen on Feb. 17.

Harmon says family members reported just after midnight Monday that Gerald Muhl left home on foot and may be suicidal. His body was found hours later in a field near the 12000 block of Ocean View Drive.

Authorities were searching for evidence in that area and the hillsides surrounding their home off the Pyramid Highway.
