APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. (AP) -- A 76-year-old Mesa man who'd been reported missing has been found dead in a desert area of Apache Junction on the eastern outskirts of the Phoenix area.

Police say Robert Lee Moore was found Wednesday near his disabled vehicle. He'd gone missing Sunday.

Police say there's no indication of foul play and that they suspect Moore died of exposure after getting lost.
