Officers said a deceased man was found near a creek.

Police initially told Global News it was unclear if the death was suspicious but in an update said the coroner attended the scene and deemed it non-suspicious.

Officers said they have information which has led them to believe that it is not the body of an 83-year-old man who went missing from Toronto earlier this week.
