BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP) -- Birmingham police have found the body of an elderly Michigan man with Alzheimer's disease who went missing earlier this month.
The Macomb Daily reports that officers found the body of 85-year-old Norris Lee in a heavily wooded area of Birmingham on Friday following an eight-hour search.
Lee had been missing since Sept. 3, when he walked away from a luncheon he was attending at the Community House in downtown Birmingham.
Police suspect no foul play in his death, but the body was taken to the county's medical examiner's office for an autopsy.
In a police news release, Lee's family expressed thanks to everyone who "offered their support and assistance during this most difficult time."
