A missing 60-year-old man has died after being found along a stretch of highway in St. Cloud Wednesday morning, authorities said.
James Elijah Wyatt was last seen at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday at a house in the 1400 block of 10th Avenue N. in St. Cloud, police said in a news release.
Wyatt was found face up wearing the same clothes he was reported missing in just before 8 a.m. Wednesday near a fence along Hwy. 15. There was only one set of footprints near his body and no indication of foul play, police said.
He was taken to the St. Cloud Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Wyatt was diabetic and insulin-dependent and suffered from dementia, authorities said.
