Terry Trafford, a missing hockey player, was believed to be found dead on Tuesday.

A vehicle matching the description of Trafford’s was found in a Walmart parking lot in Michigan, reported NBC. A deceased male was found inside. The body is believed to be Trafford.

Trafford’s father told WJRT-TV in Flint that the body is indeed his son’s.

Trafford, 20, was a forward with the Saginaw Spirit of the Ontario Hockey League.

He was last seen on March 3 at the team’s home arena.

Trafford’s girlfriend told the Toronto Sun that her boyfriend suffered from depression for many years and threatened to kill himself on March 1 while talking to her over the phone. 

Trafford was living with the team’s president Craig Goslin and Goslin’s wife.

“The reason that he was in with us was that he needed some mentoring,” Goslin told MLive.com. “We made sure we mentored the young man. He’s a good kid that seems to make some bad decisions at times.”
