The body of missing Maryland man, who family members thought could be headed for Maine, has been found in Bladensburg, Md., about 10 miles from where he wandered off earlier this month.

Timothy Fowler, 69, of Largo, Md., was found Sunday and a medical examiner ruled he died of natural causes, according to Maine State Police spokesman Stephen McCausland.

Fowler, who grew up in Portland and whose three adult children live in Maine, walked away from an adult day-care center in Largo on April 8, according to police.

Police said his family suspected when it was discovered he was missing that he may have intended to return to Maine and may have found transportation, though he had no money, no driver’s license and owns no vehicle. Fowler suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.

Fowler was born and raised in Portland, has children in Raymond and Harrison and at one time worked at the Brunswick Naval Air Station and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery.
