The body of 88-year-old retired University Prof. Charles Cannell was found Friday morning, according to the Ann Arbor Police Department.

Cannell was last seen Tuesday in the main lobby of the Institute for Social Research Building, where he had an office. Glacier Hills Retirement Home, where Cannell resided, notified a family member when he could not be located Tuesday evening.

The AAPD reported Cannell”s white Honda Accord was found upside down off Glazier Way near Green Road and his body was nearby.

“The driver left the road and his car was discovered at the bottom of the hill,” said Sgt. Richard Blake of the AAPD.

The Ann Arbor News reported that Cannell might have suffered a heart attack, causing him to lose control of his car. However, Cannell had been in good mental and physical health.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death.
