Ohio authorities have recovered the body of 58-year-old trucker Robert E. Stelling Sr. of Oxford, NJ, according to The Trucker. He has been missing since April 14.

Stelling was found in his truck at an Ohio truckstop 10 miles from the Kentucky state line. He apparently died from a heart attack.

Stelling hauled cars for Orangitis Transport, a company owned by his son, Robert E. Stelling Jr. When the younger Stelling last talked with his father, he was 25 miles outside Louisville, KY, on his way to Akron, OH, to pick up a car.

Stelling was a trucker for more than 32 years.
