The elderly Ohio County man who authorities issued a Golden Alert for has been found dead in a creek.

The Ohio County Sheriff's Office says Albert "Birdo" Dockery of Horse Branch was found around 11:15 a.m. today in Caney Creek near his home in the 14000 block of U.S. Highway 62 E. in Horse Branch.

Search teams that included the Ohio County Emergency Management Agency, several county fire departments, the sheriff's office, and volunteers had been searching since Dockery reportedly went missing Friday night.

The Ohio County Coroner has taken the deceased to Madisonville for an autopsy. At this time, the sheriff's office doesn't not believe foul play was involved.
