The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office has canceled a Silver Alert for a missing Evansville man. We're told Ronald Hayes was found dead this afternoon on the near South Green River Rd. and Old Green River Rd.

Investigators say an Indiana State Police airplane spotted a car matching the description of the car Hayes was believed to be driving when he was last seen. The car was found in a remote part of the Knight Township river bottoms in a place that was not visible from the road. Hayes was found dead in an open field more than two miles away from his car, according to deputies. 

Hayes was last seen Friday evening picking up dinner from a local restaurant. Investigators believe he became disoriented and drove into the river bottoms.

We're told foul play is not suspected.
