UPDATE: Lorin Senn was found dead in a West Palm Beach hotel room, according to Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Sgt. David Lefont. 

Senn's body was found at the Courtyard by Marriott at 1800 Centreparke Drive E. 

Officials say foul play is not suspected. 


West Palm Beach police said they are looking for a 64-year-old man who has been missing since Sunday.

The department said in a Tuesday morning tweet that Lorin Senn was last seen at a Best Western motel located on Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard.

Police said when he checked out of the motel on Sunday he was driving a 2018 Jeep Renegade, a rental vehicle that was later located in the city.

Family members say Senn never returned home to the Bahamas. He was supposed to fly back Sunday.

His daughter Tiffany told us over the phone, the last time she spoke with her dad was on Saturday, September 1. 

"He takes a lot of pills because he is a heart patient, takes pills to keep himself alive. We figured he had a long day he was going to probably take a nap and then get up later and do his shopping like he usually does."

But Sunday morning, his daughter said the family received a call from the airline that Senn was not on the return flight.

"At this point, it's been so long. He never goes this long without speaking to us, so we know something is wrong."

The family contacted the West Palm Beach Police Department. They say Senn arrived from the Bahamas Wednesday. Thursday night he had dinner with a friend. 

Steve Marinak said his friend talked about being in town for a doctor's visit at the V-A hospital. 

"And then I talked to him Friday morning and that was the last time I spoke to him."

Saturday we know Senn visited an auto supply store in Riviera Beach. Officers confirmed Aenn checked out of his Best Western Hotel Sunday - but where he went after that we don't know.

Tuesday morning, they found his rental car 4 miles away in the parking lot of a Courtyard Marriott Hotel. 

"He's always been there for anybody. He's just a very hard working man on this small island," his daughter said.

Anyone with information that can help detectives, should call the West Palm Beach Police Department.

Call local law enforcement or West Palm Beach police if you know of his whereabouts.
