Adam Marc Leopard, 27, of Clyde, was reported missing by family Jan. 12 to the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office.
On Sunday, Jan. 15, a call was made to 911 from a person saying they spotted a vehicle similar to one they had seen on the news that was associated with a missing person — a 2003 grey Dodge Durango.
Waynesville Police officers responded to the 2200 block of Allens Creek Road just outside Waynesville City limits. Shortly thereafter, Haywood County Deputies arrived on the scene.
Leopard was found inside the vehicle. No further details will be released at this time as an autopsy is scheduled for later this week.
