The subject of a Silver Alert in north Central Indiana Monday morning has been found dead.

Police in Carroll County say the body of 83-year-old Donald Eugene Hickman was found inside the Camden Auction Barn Monday morning.

Hickman was last seen by family at his Delphi home Sunday afternoon and his vehicle was found at the Camden Auction Barn Sunday evening.

His body was found during a follow-up search by sheriff's deputies and family members. Hickman's daughter told the Lafayette Journal and Courier police believe her father suffered a massive heart attack in a storage area of the auction company's building.

The Carroll County Coroner's Office is still investigating a cause of death.
