CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A missing 65-year-old Charlotte man last seen a week ago was found dead in Tennessee Friday, his step-daughter said.

Authorities told John Greene s family they found his car wrecked off a road in Roan Mountain State Park, just across the North Carolina-Tennessee border. Greene s body was found near the car, step-daughter Leigh Allen said.

She said police did not suspect foul play.

Green was last seen a week ago on Fairlawn Crescent Court, off Carmel Road in southeast Charlotte. But a family member says surveillance video showed him pumping gas at 10:30 a.m. last Friday at a Walmart in Spruce Pine, in the North Carolina mountains.

Family members said Greene had been without his heart medication for nearly a week.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police and other state agencies assisted in the search for the man.
