LEWISVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) - According to Lewisville police, a dead body was found in the 900 block of Grandy's Lane. Police say the adult male body was at the bottom of a dry creek bed, and noticed by a person walking in the area.

Police were later able to identify the person as 58-year-old Lonny Lee, who had been missing since Sunday.

"His roommate said he had left Sunday morning to go walk to his pharmacy up on FM 407," says Lewisville police captain Dan Rochelle.

Investigators had checked the routes Lee might have taken, but couldn't immediately check in with his pharmacy as it was closed for Labor Day. Lee was found dead just before 9 a.m. Tuesday.

It's not clear what medicines Lee was taking, but officials say there appears to be no indication of foul play. "There's nothing that would suggest suicide either, but sometimes the medical examiner will find something that escapes us in the field," says Rochelle.

An official cause of death is still pending.
