After being missing for more than 24 hours, a 76-year-old man is found dead in Ochiltree County.

Family members say Farris Wayne Sledge suffered from dementia and was reported missing on Wednesday. Officers discovered his body along a rural road in Cchiltree County around nine Thursday morning.

Police say his pick-up truck became stuck and he most likely attempted to walk several miles back into town. The Sheriff believes Sledge died of natural causes.
