An 82-year-old man with Alzheimer’s disease was found drowned in a canal near his village in Bueng Kan province on Wednesday morning.

His son, Somsak Chaikhamchan, 50, told police that his father, Rien Chaikhamchan, had disappeared two days before.

His body was found floating in a canal about two kilometres from his village.

The son said the old man liked to walk to his rubber plantation about three kilometres away from the house and stay at a hut there during the day before walking back home as a daily routine. After he did not return on Monday, Somsak and other relatives searched for Rien until his body was found.
