The deceased missing man was sadly found after the Kansas City Police Department issued a missing endangered notice last week.
Last week, the 70-year-old William M. Jensen of Kansas City was the subject of a Silver Alert from the Kansas City Police Department (KCPD). The alert states that Jensen was last seen in the Platte County area around NW Prairie View Drive and NW Transcon Drive on Saturday, December 23 at around 8:30 a.m. He was observed operating his four-door, gold 2005 Toyota Rav 4. Jensen has certain medical issues that require constant care, as the alert made clear.
In a later alert, the Missouri State Highway Patrol identified Jensen’s diagnosed medical issues as chronic obstructive lung disease and heart disease.
On Sunday morning, December 31, the Kansas City police announced that Jensen had been discovered deceased on the evening of Saturday, December 30.
Detectives and the police aircraft found the suspect’s car in rural Platte County, close to the intersection of Hwy. N and Baker Road, according to KCPD Sgt. Jake Becchina.
Becchina made a call to the Platte County Sheriff’s Office, who also finished the crash report. The sheriff’s office will be in charge of the crash and death investigation, according to Becchina.
