The man in question had a booked flight from Iceland on October 13th, but never arrived at the airport. His vehicle was found this morning at Sólheimasandur parking lot, where visitors go to see a famous crashed aeroplane.

The body was found early afternoon and will be transported to Reykjavík for further examination. It currently appears that the death was accidental.
