A MISSING reporter has been found dead after not returning from a Dunkin’ Donuts run.
Condolences have poured in for the WBZ NewsRadio traffic reporter.
Michael King, 53, left his home at 11am on Tuesday to go to Dunkin’ Donuts, his girlfriend told the Fall River Reporter.
The outlet reported that King was supposed to come home and then head to work, but that was the last time anyone saw him alive.
King failed to show up to work on Tuesday, which prompted police to search for him.
Weymouth, Massachusetts police put out an alert at about 4.30 that afternoon.
On Thanksgiving, police closed in on Bare Cove Park as they continued to search for a missing person.
They found a person, later identified as King, dead and alone inside the park.
The medical examiner’s office has said that there were no signs of foul play.
King’s girlfriend, Lisa Farrell Corey, released a statement through a friend, confirming the news.
“We are shocked and saddened to share this devastating news of her longtime boyfriend of 13 years. After an extensive overnight search by air and on foot, it was in fact him that was found earlier today in Hingham,” the statement begins.
“She would like to send her heartfelt thank you to everyone who has shared his flyer, sent texts, & assisted in helping to find him, especially the Hingham and Weymouth police Dept and first responders.
“Our prayers and deepest condolences also go out to Mike’s extended family, friends, cousins, his brother, coworkers and most importantly his elderly parents Nancy & Mike King.”
Corey shared a heartbreaking Facebook post late Thursday evening.
“Mike should be coming in from work just about this minute. He’s not,” she wrote.
“We’re supposed to be debating the movie or my show which would already be playing. I can’t write this.
“I see messages and thank you. Cannot open them right now. Just heartbroken.”
Condolences continue to pour in for King’s girlfriend and family.
“Lisa, my heart is breaking for you. Keeping you and Mike’s family in my thoughts. I am so sorry for your loss,” one person commented on Corey’s post.
“Lisa I am so sorry for your loss my thoughts and prayers are with you and your Family,” wrote another.
