LANCASTER, Wis. (AP) - A missing elderly man from the Beloit area has been found dead in Grant County.

Police say it appears Stuart Austin’s car got stuck along a remote road off Highway 133 and he succumbed to the elements.

The 84-year-old Austin had been missing since Jan. 3. Town of Beloit police say there’s no indication of foul play. His disappearance prompted searches in southern Wisconsin. A fisherman found his body Sunday near the Wisconsin River.

The Grant County coroner will conduct an autopsy.
