The missing Solsberry man police have been trying to locate for more than a month has been discovered deceased in Colorado.

According to a Greene County Sheriff's Department press release, Danny R. Carpenter, 62, and his Ford F 250 were located in Limon, Colo.

"Initial evidence at the scene indicated Carpenter may have been in the area for approximately two weeks. Mr. Carpenter was reported to suffer from several medical issues and depression," the press release states.

"Initial investigation indicates Mr. Carpenter took his own life. The Greene County Sheriff's Department is working closely with Colorado authorities."

According to the GCSD, this is close to what Carpenter's vehicle looks like. This is not an actual photo of his vehicle.

An autopsy was scheduled for this weekend.

GCSD issued a thank you to all assisting law enforcement agencies, officers, news agencies -- including WTWO's Nicole Krasean -- and the general public who provided information.


The Greene County Sheriff’s Department is still searching for a Solsberry man who was last seen on Oct. 13.

Danny R. Carpenter was last seen in the area of 9363 N. Macy Hollow Road in Solsberry. He is described as a 62-year-old white male, described as 6-foot tall, 250 pounds, gray hair, brown eyes and a possible full gray beard.

An earlier press release stated Carpenter “may be in poor health with difficulty breathing and mental confusion.”

Carpenter drives a white 2012 Ford F250, which is a two-wheel drive, standard cab and has Indiana plate number TK281NPC.

A press release from Greene County Sheriff’s Department Det. Shawn Cullison on Wednesday requested that hunters be on the lookout for Carpenter’s truck.

“With deer hunting season in full swing, along with the foliage falling from the trees, the potential to discover the vehicle is greatly enhanced,” the press release stresses.
