An elderly man’s body was found in Kayenta, Utah on Wednesday night.

The man had been reported missing just 8 hours earlier, and was found by a neighbor.

The man’s wife had reportedly become concerned when she found a note at 8:00 PM that said he went for a walk around noon.   The wife called emergency responders and they began a search for the man, just before his body had been found.

He had been a resident of Kayenta.

The cause of death is currently unknown, but officials believe heat stroke or a heart attack are possibilities.
