POTTSBORO, TX- A missing veteran from Pottsboro has been found dead, according to Lt. Rickey Wheeler with the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.

Enoch "Dickey" Dixon, 83, was reported missing from his home on Flowing Wells Road on Valentine's Day. His son says he noticed his father was gone after getting out of the shower that Friday afternoon.

Since then, family, friends, the Grayson County Sheriff's Office and various search and rescue groups have been looking for Dixon, who has dementia and uses a cane to walk.

The tragic discovery comes 13 days after Dixon was reported missing.

Lt. Rickey Wheeler with the Sheriff's Office says more information will be released this evening.

Tune into KTEN News at 10 for the latest information.

UPDATE: The Grayson County Sheriff's Office says Dixon was found around 4 p.m. this afternoon about a mile away from his house. Sheriff Keith Gary said he was lying by Lake Texoma.

"His body was in very good shape," Sheriff Gary said. "He was discovered by an individual who was out on a four-wheeler. He was just a volunteer helping out."

Sheriff Gary said there appears to be no signs of foul play and that the Grayson County Sheriff's Office is waiting for the autopsy from the medical examiner's office to determine Dixon's exact cause of death.
