A Coos County man reported missing last fall only to be found alive in his van south of Powers has now been found dead in the same place.
Sheriff's Sgt. Pat Downing told The World newspaper of Coos Bay it appears 57-year-old Mark Foss had been living out of the van with no food or water, and that he died of starvation.
Deputies found camping supplies in the vehicle and Downing said there was no recent report that Foss was missing.
The sheriff's office says the body was discovered by someone who had gone to cut firewood.
