MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities family looking for a loved one made a sad discovery Saturday morning.

Jonathan Jones, 37, was found dead by on a Brooklyn Center highway ramp.

The Minnesota State Patrol says Jones, from Blaine, was traveling westbound on Interstate 694 on a 2006 Honda motorcycle, and exited to go northbound on Highway 252. He lost control on the ramp, and crashed at about 10 p.m.

Jones was on the ramp of Highway 252 for hours before a family member used his phone to track him down, investigators say.
