Body of Missing Amarillo Man Found in Dawson County

DAWSON COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

The body of man missing out of Amarillo was found in Dawson County.

90-year-old Herman Philips' body was found inside a burned vehicle in Dawson County on Monday.

Phillips was reported missing by his family Sunday afternoon.

That night, he bought fuel at a convenience store and was disoriented.

There's no word on how he ended up in Dawson County.

There were no track marks outside the vehicle.

That led Dawson County Sheriff's Office to believe he was trapped when the car caught fire.

It has been ruled as an accident.

State fire marshals out of Midland and Lubbock plus K-9 units helped with the investigation.

Authorities are waiting for the results of the autopsy.
