DULUTH (WCCO) — Duluth Police say the body of a 95-year-old man was found outside his retirement home Wednesday morning.

Officer Jim Hanson says the elderly man left the retirement home, where he and his wife lived, at 9:40 p.m. Tuesday. When his wife woke up the next morning, she noticed he was gone.

Hanson said the man lived with his wife in an area of the retirement home where staff does not routinely check on the residents.

Authorities are trying to determine his cause of death, but it is known that there were subzero temperatures that night.
