LOUISA COUNTY, Va. — Police investigating Rob Havey’s disappearance and death said there was no initial indication of foul play.

While investigators have not yet confirmed the body found in Havey’s truck Sunday was in fact the missing Henrico father, family members did confirm the discovery of their loved one’s body.

“The search for Edward Robert Havey III, has drawn to a close with the recovery of Rob and his vehicle,” family members wrote on the Help Find Rob Havey Facebook page on Sunday evening.

Someone found Havey’s truck on Pony Farm Road in Louisa over the weekend. A man’s body was inside the vehicle, Henrico Police spokesman Lt. Chris Eley said.

“We are currently working with the Office of the Medical Examiner and the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office to positively identify the decedent and to determine manner and cause of death,” Eley said. “At this time, there is no indication of foul play.”

Sunday’s discovery came one day after a massive search was held for the 37-year-old missing man.

“We’d like to thank everyone who has prayed, shared, and searched. You truly have made an impact for his family and they are ever grateful for the love you all have shown them in such dark days,” the family wrote on Facebook. “There are a lot of questions and blanks to be filled. More information will be provided when it is appropriate.”

The family also thanked the private investigator for helping find Havey’s truck.

Havey had been missing since March 17. He was last seen alive when he walked out of his workplace, along the 6600 block of West Broad Street about 11 a.m.
