WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Police say a truck driver has been found dead in the parking lot of a Florida motel after he was not heard from for several days.

West Palm Beach police Sgt. David Lefont tells The Palm Beach Post the 50-year-old apparently died as he slept in his truck. His body was discovered on Monday around 10 a.m.

Police had tracked the man’s truck to a Days Inn after a trucking company told them he had not been heard from since Oct. 11. What caused his death is not known, but investigators do not suspect foul play.

Further details were not released.
