FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — A man who was missing for five days was found dead in a locked movie theater restroom after workers noticed an odor and forced their way in, authorities said.

Police had searched the area around the Fort Collins theater after the family of George DeGrazio reported him missing on Jan. 9 and his vehicle was found nearby.

DeGrazio, 66, died of a heart attack, Deputy Coroner James MacNaughton told KMGH-TV of Denver.

The man’s son, Dylan DeGrazio, told the station that he was upset that theater employees didn’t find his father’s body earlier.

“If I had the police department saying somebody disappeared in this area and we’re trying to locate him, I would be searching every nook and cranny of my establishment,” he said. “But that didn’t happen.”
