MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio - Police said they found a car with a body inside that could be a man reported missing from Mayfield Heights last month.
The Volkswagen was found in the parking lot of Evergreen Pain Management & Rehabilitation on Detroit Road in Sheffield Village.
"It was difficult to see that there was somebody inside the vehicle, unless you walked right up on it,. The way it was positioned, the way the body was positioned inside the vehicle," Police Chief Larry Bliss said.
Bliss said they received a call Wednesday from the Mayfield Heights Police Department asking if Sheffield Village police could check a certain location. The chief said Mayfield Heights Police tracked the missing man's cell phone to that area.
When officers arrived on scene, the chief said they found the vehicle of 33-year-old missing man Marco Gianfagna.
Bliss said the Lorain County Coroner's Office is now working to identify if the body is that of Gianfagna. The coroner said the death does not look suspicious and the autopsy will be completed within two days.
"I'm shocked. I'm shocked. I can't believe it... We talked about his work and stuff and yeah he was pleasant," John Kovan said.
Kovan told NewsChannel5 he thought the family was on vacation, but another neighbor said no one has been at Gianfagna's Mayfield Heights home since he went missing back on July 30.
Kovan said Gianfagna is a father of two and is well liked in the neighborhood. Police said they believe Gianfagna was on his way towards Akron when he went missing last month.
