Patrick Weber, 56, was last seen in Council Bluffs but his car was last seen parked outside a school in Bellevue.

But Douglas County Sheriff’s Captain Eric Sellers told 6 News Wednesday that the car was not impounded and that authorities were looking for it again.
Anyone with information about the vehicle is asked to call the CBPD at 712-328-4728.
“It was in Bellevue – it was parked – and we don’t have that car, so we’re trying to find his car,” Sellers said.

He said the autopsy was complete. The sheriff’s office was investigating the case as a homicide in conjunction with the Kearny and Council Bluffs police departments.
“We are not disclosing the cause of death right now,” Sellers said. “We keep it a little close. We didn’t even get a chance to tell the family how he died.”
According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, his body was discovered on the afternoon of Monday, March 13, when someone walking their dog saw the body about 15 feet from the road, near 66th Street and Rainwood Road.
Two bodies and the remains of a third have been found along Rainwood Road in northern Douglas County in the past seven months, but authorities have said the cases are unrelated.
The sellers also shared new details with 6 News about the human remains found near Elkhorn, calling it “tough, tough business.”
