The body of Erwing Witt, the 74-year-old man reported missing twice in the last two weeks, was located late Tuesday afternoon.
He was located off the 2100 block of west Amador Avenue. Las Cruces police investigators do not suspect foul play in his death, but his body will be sent to the New Mexico medical investigator’s office for an autopsy.
Witt was first reported missing on May 26 and was located shortly thereafter. On May 31, he was reported missing for the second time. Both times, it is believed Witt left his home on foot and his direction of travel was unknown each time.
The Las Cruces Police Department thanks those who disseminated information on the missing person reports.
