According to St. Paul Police Department, 73-year-old You Houa Thao was found dead in a wooded area near the 1500 block of Jackson Street. His body was found around 10:30 a.m., police said. 

Thao was reported missing May 8 after he left his home on the 1500 block of Timberlake Road around 9:30 a.m. Police said Thao "typically only goes for short walks," and that there was additional concern for his wellbeing because he has diabetes and was recovering from a stroke.
