TORONTO, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- A skull found in a wooded area near a Toronto golf course has been identified as an elderly man who vanished in July 2011, police said Friday.

The skull was found Sunday by a walker, the Toronto Sun reported. York Police Constable Andy Pattenden said it was positively identified as Robert Hagans, 76.

Investigators do not believe Hagans was attacked, Pattenden said.

Hagans, a retired mechanical engineer, left home without taking any cash or his cell phone. He was seen walking nearby.

His three sons said at a news conference after the disappearance that Hagans had some memory loss and had sometimes wandered from home.
