KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A 37-year-old Missouri man who was missing for a week after wrecking his car in a ravine has died.

Police in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, said Ryan Linneman died Saturday at a hospital. The Kansas City Star reports he was found Wednesday in his vehicle at the bottom of a wooded ravine along Interstate 470 by a dirt bike rider.

Police asked the public for help finding Linneman after he was last seen driving his car on Oct. 9.

Crash investigators determined Linneman’s car ran off of Interstate 470 and went down a 50-foot incline. The vehicle landed in a gully that was obscured from the view of passing motorists.
