An 82-year-old Korean man who was reported missing Saturday night was found dead near a Laguna Woods golf course Wednesday.

Sa K. Lee, who had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, was found in a shrub area by a search-and-rescue team around 4:30 p.m. near Laguna Woods Moulton Parkway, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department told the OC Register.

The body was confirmed to be Lee Thursday, the department said.

Lee, who was an avid golfer before he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, went missing Saturday from his Laguna Woods home, where he lived with his wife and son.
