PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Authorities say a missing diabetic man from Humboldt has been found dead inside his pickup truck and it appears he was in an accident.

Yavapai County Sheriff's officials said the body of 49-year-old Dale Stewart was found about 4 p.m. Tuesday.

They said his vehicle was located in a ravine off of Highway 169 about halfway between Highway 69 and Interstate 17.

Deputies reached the truck and found Stewart's body inside. They said it appears he suffered injuries consistent with a vehicle accident.

Authorities said the cause of death will be determined by the county medical examiner, and the Arizona Department of Public Safety is handling the accident investigation.

Stewart was reported missing Saturday night after he failed to return home from his job less than 2 miles away.
