A Tucson man missing since Monday was found dead on Mount Lemmon Wednesday morning.

Deputies stationed on the mountain found Charles Engelbracht's Nissan Leaf parked near the Upper Green Mountain Trailhead around 8:20 Tuesday night, said Deputy Tracy Suitt, a Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman. 

Search and rescue teams from the department and the Southern Arizona Rescue Association searched for Engelbracht through the night, Suitt said. 

Crews resumed their efforts Wednesday morning and found the man's body lying on the ground about 200 yards from his car shortly before 11 a.m., Suitt said.

"There were no signs of foul play," Suitt said. 

Engelbracht, 43, was last seen leaving his home near the 4900 block of North Louis River Way, near North First Avenue and East River Road, around 6 a.m. Monday, said a Tucson police news release.

He was on his way to work at Raytheon but did not arrive for his shift that day, the release said.

He has an illness that causes him to become confused or disoriented, the release said.
