DARLINGTON, Wis. (WMTV) – Police said in an update Friday that a missing man who frequently travels between his homes in Darlington, Wisconsin, and Seward, Alaska, who had not been seen in more than three months, had died of natural causes.

On Wednesday, the Darlington Police Dept. asked people to be on the lookout for Eugene Taylor who was last seen in mid-October.

Darlington PD said in a Facebook post on Friday that he was found dead by Alaska troopers on Thursday and noted he died of natural causes.

“We, at DPD, wish to express our sympathy to Eugene’s family and friends, and would like to once again thank everyone for their tips and assistance in locating Gene,” the department said.

Taylor, 75, lived in both cities and traveled alone between them. Police also said he would visit friends across the country, which is why his missing status was not confirmed until now, the police department explained in its alert.
