The body of a missing Alzheimer's patient was found Tuesday evening in Mayslick, Kentucky.

According to the Mason County Sheriff's Office, the body of 78-year-old Roy Allen Bishop was spotted about a quarter mile from his home by a Kentucky State Police helicopter.

Due to his age, medical condition and the heat, authorities do not believe any foul play is involved. A deputy coroner says he died of heat exhaustion.

Bishop wandered off from his residence on Old Murphysville Road around 9 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
