GOLCONDA, Ill. (AP) — Illinois State Police say they don't suspect foul play in the death of a suburban Chicago man whose body was found in southern Illinois.

Authorities in Pope County say the body of 55-year-old William Foley III of Downers Grove was found Sunday in his car in the Shawnee National Forest in Pope County.

Foley had been reported missing earlier this month, after he was last seen leaving his job in Lombard.

State police say they're awaiting autopsy results.

Pope County is roughly a six-hour drive from suburban Chicago.

Services for Foley will be at 11:15 a.m. Friday at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Lisle.
