The North Platte Police Department continues to investigate a body found late Sunday night behind the parking lot of a McDonald's.

Officials say they were told of an unresponsive man lying behind the McDonald's parking lot shortly after 9:30 p.m. They say that body was outside of a Dodge Ram van with Oregon plates.

Officials are still trying to notify next of kin before they can release the man's name.

McDonald's employees say the van had been parked next door in the parking lot of Taco Bell for the past month. They say in the 24 hours before the body was found, the van was moved behind their restaurant.
