BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) — A Washington County sheriff's spokesman says a 69-year-old man who walked away from an adult care home in the Cedar Hills community near Beaverton, Ore., has been found dead.

Sgt. David Thompson said the body of Brant Koller was found Thursday afternoon in the backyard of a home. The cause of death was not immediately determined but Thompson says the death did not appear suspicious.

Searchers had been looking for Koller since he walked away on Tuesday.

The sheriff's office said earlier that Koller had dementia and was not dressed for cold weather.
