Family: Missing Council man found dead in his truck

COUNCIL, Idaho (KBOI) - A 78-year-old man from Council who has been missing for nearly a week was found dead in his pickup truck Sunday morning, the family says.

A family member told KBOI 2News that Bill Summers was found 15 miles north of Council on a remote stretch of road. An Idaho Power crew was working in the area, and spotted Summers in his truck, still wearing his seat belt.

The family said it appears the 78-year-old's truck did go off the road, but that it wasn't badly damaged.

The family isn't sure why Summers was driving in that direction, but they think he was confused.

The coroner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Summers left his home late Sunday night last week.
