The body of a Brighton Heights man who had been missing since Monday was found on Saturday morning on a hillside along Route 65.

Searchers were out that morning in the North Side looking for Walter Parker, 82. His body was spotted near Millerton Avenue.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said an autopsy is scheduled for Sunday. Foul play is not suspected.

Parker, who had mild dementia and macular degeneration, left home on Jan. 25 and didn't return. Police and family said he was spotted on Monday night at Rivers Casino, where it's believed he got a meal from the buffet before leaving and heading toward the Allegheny T station.
