FORT COLLINS – The man whose body was discovered Monday night in the 6100 block of Zeigler Road has been identified as George Gosden, a 64-year-old man with dementia who went missing on July 5.

Authorities believe he died on July 6 from exposure, dehydration and cardiovascular disease, according to a news release from the Larimer County Coroner's Office.

Gosden, an Army Special Forces veteran, moved to Fort Collins from Ohio last year with his wife to live with his son.

His family believes he walked away from his home in the 2800 block of Eastborough Drive – about five miles away from where he was found.

Volunteers have spent more than a week searching for Gosden, who his family believed was still alive.
