Body found in Rochester Hills gravel pit identified as Joshua Clark

Shelby Township police on Tuesday identified a man found dead at a local gravel pit as Rochester Hills resident Joshua Clark, who had been missing for more than two weeks.

The missing man, Clark, 45, was found Monday evening approximately 9:30 p.m., by two individuals riding on an all-terrain vehicle in the gravel pit, which is located near Hixon and Barclay streets, located north of Auburn Road and east of Dequindre.

Township Police Chief Robert Shelide said investigators worked on the scene well into Tuesday morning. Clark has been missing since February 2. There are no signs of trauma, according to police, and foul play is not suspected.

“My officers got over there and discovered the person was deceased and immediately started a death investigation,” said Shelide.

A family friend told the press that Clark got into a car with a woman for a ride home, but never made it and his family doesn’t know where she dropped him off.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is assisting in the investigation.

“Obviously they’re going to continue with us, it will be a joint investigation until we find out exactly what happened,” said Shelide.

Macomb County Medical Examiner’s Office will work to determine a cause of death.

Anyone with information about Clark’s disappearance or death is asked to contact Shelby Township Detective Lt. Schmittler at (586) 731-2121, ext.315, or Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Detective Schroeder at (248) 537-3513.
