SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - Police say a man found dead in the trunk of a car in San Bernardino was a missing El Monte man.

San Bernardino Police Lt. Rich Lawhead says the body of Miguel Evora was discovered Wednesday following reports that a car with an odor rising from it had been parked in a residential area for several days.

Motor Vehicles records show the Ford Fiesta that Evora was found in was registered to him.

The Sun newspaper reports that the 28-year-old was reported missing Sept. 19.

Lawhead says the investigation is still in its early stages.
