(CBS/AP) DE SOTO, Kan. - A man reported missing in Missouri several months ago has been found dead inside a refrigerator in northeastern Kansas.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Department says the refrigerator was abandoned in a field near the town of De Soto.

Authorities announced Monday the body inside was that of 33-year-old Gregory Price, whose disappearance was reported early last year to police in Independence, Mo. The sheriff's department says Price's last known whereabouts were in the De Soto area.

A tip led deputies to the field where they found the refrigerator and the body late last week. The cause of death has not been determined.
