A man who was reported missing in September died in a Windsor Township crash, and his vehicle was found in a ravine Sunday morning, police said.

Pennsylvania State Police opened an investigation regarding the whereabouts of William Stubblebine, 41, who was last seen on Sept. 10. 

York Area Regional Police responded to the incident around 9 a.m. Sunday near Zion Church and Grim Hollow roads.

Stubblebine was found about 6 feet away from his SUV, which was overturned and lying across a stream down a ravine in a heavily wooded area several hundred feet off the roadway, according to police and the York County Coroner's Office.

"Based on the evidence at the scene, it was apparent that the vehicle and Stubblebine were in that location for an extended period of time," according to a news release. 

Police added that Stubblebine's vehicle left the roadway and became airborne before crashing.

Stubblebine was later identified as the same man sought by Pennsylvania State Police as a missing person.

Stubblebine's cause of death was ruled to be multiple blunt force trauma, with the manner of death accidental, the coroner's office reported. No autopsy will be performed.
