A missing 69-year-old man that was reportedly last seen nearly a week ago has been found dead inside a crashed vehicle Monday in Walker County, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Henry Schelsteder was a contract driver who was last seen the evening of May 2 while he was en route to the Dallas area to make a delivery, Texas EquuSearch said. It was initially believed Schelsteder was near Madisonville, Texas when someone last heard from him.
According to Texas EquuSearch, he was described as a “very safe and methodical driver who is very specific about the stops he makes and always takes extra precautions in bad weather.”
Schelsteder was found dead on I-45 between mile markers 127 and 128. The cause of death is unknown.
The crash is being investigated.
