The body of a missing Ohioville man was found Thursday afternoon in a creek near his home on Smith's Ferry Road, Beaver County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossi said.

An autopsy is scheduled Friday on John William Zinich, 80, who had been reported missing after he walked away from his home around 2 a.m., Tatalovich-Rossi and county emergency dispatchers said.

Police, volunteer firefighters and other searchers were aided by a state police helicopter in trying to find Zinich, who county emergency dispatchers said was known to have health problems.

His body was found submerged in water at the foot of a steep hillside, Tatalovich-Rossi said.
