Atlanta police tell CBS Atlanta News that the body found in a busy railyard in northwest Atlanta early Friday morning is that of an elderly man who may have died of hypothermia.
A worker found the body near some tracks at about 3:30 a.m.
"We don't suspect foul play," said Atlanta Police Homicide Commander Paul Guerrucci.
Authorities confirmed the man found was 86-year-old John Graham.
A Mattie's Call was issued for Graham Thursday, and he was reportedly suffering from the early stages of dementia, police said. He was last seen on Spinks Street, less than three miles from the railyard.
