Seoul City Mayor Park Won-soon was found dead by police on Friday, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported, after his daughter reported him missing a day earlier.
The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency found his body in northern Seoul, near where his phone signal was last detected during a late night search, Yonhap said.
A massive search operation was under way on Thursday.
His daughter called police on Thursday afternoon and said her father left “a will-like” message before leaving their home four to five hours earlier, the Associated Press reported.
The daughter did not explain the contents of the message and said she decided to call police because she could not reach her father on the phone.
