PENDLETON, OR (KPTV) -

Oregon State Police are investigating the death of a man after his body was found on the side of I-84 near Pendleton.

Police said they responded to calls of a body along the side of the road around 8:54 a.m. Tuesday near milepost 209.

Officials said they arrived and pronounced 73-year-old Neil Schulte of Norland, Washington dead at the scene.

Schulte had been traveling from Austin, Texas to Norland and was reported missing by his girlfriend on Dec.4 according to police reports.

A day earlier, police had towed Schulte’s abandoned car off the interstate near the spot where his body was found six days later.

Investigators said Schulte most likely died of natural causes.
