MILTON—Authorities say a Milton man who disappeared last week has been found in Colorado, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to a release from the Milton Police Department, authorities found Cory W. Broetzman, 41, Milton, dead in a creek bed in Jefferson County, Colo., west of Denver early Sunday.

Police believe Broetzman died from a gunshot wound that was self-inflicted. Authorities in Colorado are investigating his death, and they do not suspect foul play, according to the release.

Milton police sent out a media alert and launched a multi-state search late last week after they learned Broetzman planned to harm himself. Local police could not locate Broetzman last week. Authorities believed he'd driven as far west as Altoona, Iowa, on Thursday, Milton police said.

It's not clear why Broetzman went to Colorado.
