A 54-year-old Orland Park, Ill., man who was reported missing was found dead Saturday night in a vehicle that had crashed north of Mount Carroll.

Bruce A. Scheidegger had been reported missing by the Orland Park Police Department. Orland Park authorities contacted the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department because Scheidegger also maintained a residence at Lake Carroll.

A local law enforcement search discovered Scheidegger’s vehicle on Loran Road near the intersection of Indian Trail Road. Authorities said the vehicle had left the roadway, driving over a steep embankment and overturning.

Scheidegger was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Department continues to investigate the incident.
