Dad finds missing son's body after week-long search

FINDLAY, Ohio -

A father is grieving after finding his missing son's body in a parked truck in a parking lot in Findlay.

Thirty-nine year-old Brian Domanski, also known as Shaggy, was last heard from on his father's birthday January 3rd. He left for work in his truck and was never heard from again.

Domanski lived in Toledo, but commuted to work in Columbus Grove and maintained an apartment in Ottawa for his job.

When he didn't hear from his son for over a week, Domanski's father Dan reported him missing to Toledo Police on January 13. Police looked around Domanski's Toledo residence, but didn't find anything suspicious.

Friends and family appealed to help for the public through social media. But Dan Domanski and his wife continued his search into Findlay. He spotted his son's car in a parking lot near the McDonald's on Trenton Avenue and found Brian slumped at the wheel.

His father was shocked. "I never even imagined he'd be in there. People parked right next to him and they never seen him and I was amazed. When I seen him there, you know my heart was done."

Relatives like his cousin Dave Stasko have questions. "Was he there for the full 10 days? If he was then, didn't anybody notice that the truck's been sitting there?"

Domanski's relatives are devastated. They say his sudden disappearance was unlike him and with the recent bad weather, they were worried about his safety.

 Stasko says, "Did he just die? We have aneurysms in the family. He could've possibly had that.

Findlay Police say Domanski's body was taken to the Lucas County Coroner's Office to Determine the cause of death.

Autopsy results are still pending and the family is still waiting for answers.
