The Dallas man who went missing after leaving the gym in October has been found dead.

A survey crew working at Paul Quinn College found human remains in a wooded area, and the Dallas County medical examiner identified the body as James Alan White.

White, 55, was an executive at KPMG. He and his husband, Rusty Jenkins, both left their home at 4:40 a.m. on Oct. 22 and headed to their respective gyms, which was their routine.

White was seen driving away from L.A. Fitness in the Cityplace neighborhood about an hour later. Security cameras showed him at a RaceTrac gas station on Inwood Road at about 6 a.m.

His black Porsche Macan was found a week later in the Highland Hills neighborhood of Oak Cliff, and his body was found less than a mile from there at about 12:30 p.m. Thursday.

White had just started as a managing director for the professional services network and uncharacteristically missed a 7 a.m. conference call on the day he went missing. His husband and brother Tim White began looking for him immediately.

“As we had hoped Alan was still alive, the finding of his remains obviously will now help our family with some closure,” Tim White told Dateline on Sunday. “Finding his remains will also help the Dallas PD with the ongoing investigation as to what happened to him.”

The Dallas Police Department is asking anyone with information in this case to contact Detective Eric Barnes, 214.283.4818 or eric.barnes@dallascityhall.com. Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for any information called into Crime Stoppers, 214.373.8477 that leads to an arrest and indictment in this case. A private fund is offering an additional $10,000.
