The Ector County Sheriff's Office is investigating an unattended death of a 45-year-old Midland man near Goldsmith.

Authorities confirmed they were called out on Monday after Bradley Bell went missing. His co-workers used GPS on his truck to track him down at an electric control building near North Station Road and Scharbauer Street.

Authorities believe Bell appeared to have been electrocuted as there was no blood at the scene.

Bell's body will be sent to Tarrant County for autopsy. For now, the sheriff's office is treating the incident as an unattended death.
