Prince George's County police found a missing 20-year-old University of Maryland, College Park student dead Friday night.

David Jonathan Scherr had not been seen since Dec. 19 near the College Park campus, thought to be driving a black 2013 Ford Escape. Police found Scherr unresponsive in the vehicle in a parking lot off of Route 50 in Bowie about 10 p.m. Friday.

Police said they are investigating the death as a suicide.

According to the university's student directory, Scherr lived in the 4700 block of Norwich Road in College Park and on Fencepost Court in Pikesville. A Facebook page for Scherr, whose profile picture matches a photo released by Prince George's police of Scherr, says he was a 2010 graduate of Pikesville High School.
