Ten years after going missing, a supermarket worker has been found dead in a gap behind a freezer in the store – where he is thought to have taken a break.

Police in the mid-western US state of Iowa say the parents of Larry Ely Murillo-Moncada, who was 25 at the time, reported him missing in November 2009 after he became upset and ran out of their home.

His body was discovered by workers removing shelves and freezers from the now-closed down No Frills store in the city of Council Bluffs in January this year.

Investigators believe Mr Murillo-Moncada fell into an 18-inch gap between the back of the cooler and a wall, where he became trapped.

They claim any attempts by him to call out for help, were muffled by the noise of the coolers' compressors.
