Body of missing elderly man found
OPELOUSAS - Deputies in St. Landry Parish say the body of a missing elderly man reported missing in early March was discovered Saturday near his property.
Texas Equusearch members found Joseph Simien, Sr. dead, just west of his property line on Sidney Charles Road in Opelousas.
No foul play is suspected at this time, but an autopsy will be done later in the week to determine a cause of death.
Family members say Simien also suffered from early signs of dementia.
Simien was reported missing by family members on March 11. He was last seen at his home two days before.
