Philip Paligraf went missing Saturday

HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. - The Montgomery County Coroner said a Fishers man found over the weekend dead died of natural causes.

The body of Philip Paligraf, a missing 55-year-old Fishers man, was found Sunday afternoon inside a vehicle.

Family members said he went missing Saturday afternoon after he didn't return from a trip to Crawfordsville and that he was last seen about 2 p.m. in the area of Offield Monument Road.

Just after 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Paligraf's family and emergency crews searched a wooded area near State Road 32 and County Road 900 East. It was in that area that they found his body inside his gray, 2005 GMC Sonoma truck.

Investigators said it appeared that Paligraf's truck left the road before stopping in the wooded area.
