ELLINGTON, MO (KFVS) - According to Reynolds County Sheriff Tom Volner, Christen Shoemaker was found dead Thursday in his car in Shannon County as a result of a car crash.

Christen T. Shoemaker, 38, of Ellington last spoke with family on June 17.

Reynolds County Sheriff Tom Volner says it is unusual for him to disappear.

Shoemaker was a farmer and did not show up for work. He left behind several animals which is out of character.

Police say foul play is a possibility.
