The body of a missing Agnew man was found Saturday afternoon. 78-year-old Robert Goss had been missing since Monday afternoon, when he drove away with his sister's Jeep Cherokee.

He was found outside the vehicle just before four p.m. Saturday near the end of River Road.

A resident in the area discovered the body, according to the Clallam County sheriff's office.

Goss moved to the Port Angeles area about two years ago from northern California.

His family said he was beginning to suffer from dementia.

Foul play is not suspected, according to sheriff's chief criminal deputy Ron Cameron.
