Update: Missing Nash County Man Found Dead

A devestating loss for a Nash County family today, instead of the happy homecoming they were hoping for, they now have to plan a funeral.

A Silver Alert was issued for 77 year old Donald Melvin Friday. Saturday, he was found about a fourth of a mile from home...dead.

Police say Melvin parked his truck in a path and was 75 yards from his vehicle.

Authorities say they don't suspect foul play and believe Melvin died of natural causes.

Melvin's family call authorities Friday, when he went missing. They told police Melvin suffered from dementia or other cognitive impairments.
