A man who walked away from a Statesboro-area personal care home Saturday was found dead in Savannah Sunday evening, according to Chatham County authorities.

No foul play is suspected in the death of James Lee Green, 66, said Julian Miller, public affairs administrator for Chatham County metro police.

An autopsy will be performed at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab in Savannah, Miller said. However, he said that it appears Green's death was from natural causes, and there is no indication of foul play.

Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson issued a lookout Sunday for Green, who he said walked away from the Pulaski Road personal care home Saturday around 6:30 p.m., leaving voluntarily on foot after telling the staff that he "had some business to take care of."

Green had only recently moved to Bulloch County from Savannah, Anderson said.

"According to staff, Green has walked away from similar homes in Chatham County before," he said.

Miller did not comment on any further details of Green's death except to say that his body was found just before 5 p.m. Saturday between two apartment buildings on Ogeechee Road.
