Police say a 93-year-old Wichita man who was traveling to Oklahoma, but disappeared after leaving Hot Springs, Ark., has been found dead inside his crashed vehicle.

Hot Springs police say the body of Harlan Swartzendruber was found inside his upside down vehicle that was submerged in a creek near the intersection of Highways 270 and 71 in Y City – about 70 miles west of Hot Springs.

Swartzendruber was last seen in Hot Springs and was traveling to Muskogee, Okla. He was reported missing last Monday.
