TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Topeka police say a body found near an assisted living facility appears to be that of a 65-year-old resident of the facility who had been missing more than a week.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1JaJzqS ) police were called Thursday to a wooded area where the body was found just west of the facility.

Police Lt. Colleen Stuart said Friday that evidence indicates the deceased person was Benedict Gerstner, who had been missing from the facility since Aug. 13. The cause of death remains under investigation.
