Autopsy results show a missing Omaha man whose body was found in rural Saunders County died of hypothermia.
Search teams found the body of 20-year-old Jeffrey Julian on Monday, not far from where his car was discovered over the weekend.
Julian had been missing for nearly six weeks.
Investigators await the results of toxicology tests.
His naked body was found near County Road X and Highway 77 around 3 p.m., about a mile southeast from where his car was discovered on Saturday. There were no signs of foul play.
“There have been a lot of cold days since then,” said Kevin Ordway, Julian’s father. “He didn't have a coat. Where was he going, why didn't he pick up the phone and call, you know he had his cell phone."
Julian had last been seen in the area of 180th and Pacific. His uncle's dog was with him at the time of his disappearance.
Members of the United States ATV Search and Rescue found the body. They also came upon Julian's car Saturday inside a ravine about a mile-and-a-half south of Fremont along Highway 77 near 109th Street south of the Platte River. They say it had been rolled down the hill and came to rest against a tree.
Cell phone activity connected to Julian was traced to the area
