A missing elderly man was found dead Friday morning near West Miracle Mile and Interstate 10.

The man was identified as Donald Johns, 84, of the 3500 block of North Freeway. His family reported him missing June 21, police said.

Johns left his home for a short walk and did not return, and his family told police he suffered from short-term memory loss because of a medical condition.

A person called 911 Friday morning to report the body of a dead man near Miracle Mile and I-10, police said.

The body appeared to have been there for a few days, said police.
