A 61-year-old man was reported missing Saturday and found dead Tuesday, according to the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office.
The man was identified as Clarence Cash by family. He was last seen driving a 1998 Jeep. Cash’s location was relayed off a cell tower in a mountainous area off the parkway in Augusta County.
A search on the ground and by air was conducted over the weekend in Augusta, Nelson and Rockbridge counties. Cash was found in his car several miles off the road in a secluded area. Cash was pronounced dead on the scene.
The Virginia Department of Emergency Management along with the Virginia State Police and other search organizations were brought in to help find Cash.
