Police say foul play is not suspected after an elderly man that went missing in Rexdale last week was found dead in a Brampton conservation area.

Chandulal Gandhi, 83, went missing from the Kipling Avenue and Steeles Avenue West area on Sept. 15th.

Investigators said they found his body in the Claireville Conservation Area on Sunday afternoon.

Police Supt. Ron Taverner said the body was found in a remote area of the park.

He added that the coroner believes Gandhi likely died of exposure.

“It’s a very, very sad situation,” he said.

Investigators are unsure how Gandhi got to that location.

“No foul play is suspected,” police said in a release Monday. “This is now a private family matter and police will limit further comment out of respect for the family.”
