According to their son, who reported them missing in January, Bob and Loveda Proctor of Aurora had eight grandchildren and numerous more great-grandchildren.
Police say an elderly Nebraska couple was discovered dead two months after they went missing.
The corpses of Aurora residents Robert and Loveda Proctor were discovered Saturday afternoon inside a vehicle “stuck on a low maintenance road” in Buffalo County, according to the sheriff’s office and Aurora Police Department (APD).
The car was seen north of 100th and Keystone Road at 3:15 p.m. local time, according to the statement.
Loveda, 92, and Bob, 89, have been missing since mid-January. Victor Proctor, the man’s son, said that his parents were found about 60 miles from their home.
According to the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) and APD, an investigation into Bob and Loveda’s deaths is underway.
According to a joint statement issued on Saturday, authorities do not suspect foul play and have requested autopsies.
On January 11, Bob and Loveda were last spotted leaving a Grand Island hospital.
A month later, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) verified that the pair was seen on Jan. 12 on video security footage at the Pump & Pantry on Highway 6 in Hastings. That is the couple’s final known footage.
Tammy Proctor, Bob and Loveda’s daughter-in-law, previously told that when she and Victor went to bring meals over to their house, they sensed something was amiss.
They weren’t there when Victor carried the meal over there, and it was dark, as Tammy recounted earlier this month.
Tammy and Victor reported the pair missing a short time later. They believe the husband and wife became disoriented while driving home one night.
Grandma doesn’t generally drive after dark, Tammy said.
According to Victor, Bob and Loveda have been together for over seven decades. He stated that they have eight grandchildren and numerous more great-grandchildren.
Victor told in January that Bob was a Navy veteran who served during the Vietnam War. He had dementia as well, and his wife, Loveda, cared for him.
