TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Police have located 30-year-old Thomas C. Pimper, who has been missing since Tuesday.

On March 4, Pimper left his residence in the area of Speedway Blvd and Country Club Road to go to a nearby Circle K, according to Sgt. Pete Dugan with the Tucson Police Department.

Pimper never returned home or showed up for work the following day.

On Saturday, March 8, deputies with the Pima County Sheriff's Department called police to say they found Pimper inside his vehicle dead of an apparent suicide, according to Sgt. Chris Widmer with TPD.

His vehicle was parked in the 12,100 block of South Old Nogales Highway, Widmer said.

Pimper's family told police that he suffered from a medical condition that requires daily prescribed medication, said Dugan. He left that medication at home along with his wallet and cell phone, but left his residence with only his debit card and his vehicle.

The vehicle is described as a dark blue, 2005, 4-door Honda Civic, with paint peeling on the trunk. The license plate on the vehicle is AZW2760.

Pimper is described as a Caucasian male, 6'0" tall, 150 pounds, with short, brownish-blond hair (balding), a light brown beard and mustache, with blue eyes and glasses. He was last seen wearing a light blue Polo-style shirt, with black pants and black shoes.
