Scottsdale police say a body found in a canal has been identified as a man who was reported missing after he failed to return from a bicycle ride earlier this week.
A police officer discovered the body of 78-year-old Edward Allan Brawley on Saturday morning near Hayden Road and Indian Bend.
Police believe Brawley was riding his bike along the canal and somehow fell into the water.
Brawley's wife told police her husband had left the house around 12:30 p.m. Thursday to go for a bike ride near Hayden Road and McCormick Parkway. She said he usually was gone for no more than an hour.
Police do not suspect foul play.
The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office is working to determine the cause of death.
