One of the men who discovered a body inside a truck in Greenville speaks out as family and friends of a missing man in Bibb County wait for answers.

Investigators say the autopsy for the man found in the parking lot of a Greenville restaurant is schedule for Tuesday, and restaurant owners say finding the body was a shock they will not soon forget.

The owner of Old Mexico says a Toyota Tacoma pick up truck sat for three to four days in the parking lot. He says it is not unusual for cars to be parked outside the restaurant for days at a time. It backs up to a hotel.

He says employees were cleaning up the parking lot when they smelled something suspicious coming from the truck, "They said, 'Daniel somebody is inside the truck,' you know. And I said, 'I don't believe it,' you know...and we look in and I see somebody in the back, you know, in the back seat," says owner, Daniel Maciel.

Brent Police confirmed the body is that of Bobby Seales, A Bibb County man missing since March 28th. Family and friends who searched for him...said in an interview before the body was found that Seales was a family man who worshipped his kids, "They can't stand to be away from each other. It's just not like Bobby. This is so strange to all of us. None of us understand," says Angela Finnen.

Seales told his family he was headed to a nearby gas station when he disappeared. Security tapes from the gas station friends and family believe he would have gone to show no sign of Seales. The owner of Old Mexico also says Seales never ate there.

Seales is survived by a wife and three kids, and the family say they are too shocked to talk about the death.

The cause of death is still under investigation pending Tuesday's autopsy.
