ST. JOSEPH, MO (KCTV/AP) -

Law enforcement agencies have located missing a Texas truck driver whose tractor-trailer was found abandoned at a northwest Missouri gas station.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports 49-year-old Mike Howell of Huntsville, TX, was last seen at the Trex Mart along Interstate 35 and Missouri 116 about 11 a.m. Sunday.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Howell was found at Cameron hotel. Troopers say a man saw media reports and reported picking him up.

Howell is a driver for R&M Transportation in Omaha, NE, which used a GPS to locate the vehicle after he didn't show up at his intended destination.

Authorities got a call about 7 a.m. Monday about Howell's truck at the store. His wallet, cell phone and other personal items were found inside.
