The search for a missing 76-year old Alzheimer's patient from Holbrook ended Wednesday when his body was found a few miles from his home.
The body of Jack Burke, who had a history of wandering away, was found in the woods, said David Traub, a spokesman for the Norfolk district attorney’s office.
Burke was found early Wednesday afternoon after several days of intense searching. His family had pleaded with the public for any information leading to Burke’s whereabouts. Reported sightings had placed him in Braintree, but officials could not confirm those sightings.
Traub said that authorities do not suspect foul play.
