A Kennebunkport man who had been missing since Sunday was found dead Thursday afternoon.

The body of 71-year-old Howard Lamson was found about 3 p.m. less than a mile from his Oak Ridge Road home in Kennebunkport, where he was last seen Sunday afternoon, according to Mark Latti, a spokesman for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

Latti said police received a tip Thursday that a man matching Lamson’s description had been seen earlier in the week.

Lamson suffered from dementia and his death is not considered suspicious, Latti said.

No other information was available.
