The body of 39 year old Jacob Emmanuel was found early on Tuesday afternoon just outside the village of Rogdia in the Municipality of Malevizi, on a country road leading to Achlada.
His disappearance had been reported to the police by his partner and a search immediately began. According to information, the man worked professionally in Heraklion, but he had not contacted his partner since last week.
The point where his body was finally discovered, was where his car was parked, but locals had paid no attention to the fact that it was there for several days, as there is a villager who owns the same kind of car.
A passerby saw the body lying outside of the car, reported the incident and an autopsy will now determine the cause of death.
