The body of an elderly man who left his home to get a prescription filled on Friday has been found.
Joseph John Sodomka, 84, who lived near Scenic Heights Elementary School, was found around 2:45 p.m. Sunday in a clay pit area in the 1900 block of Blossom Trail, Pensacola.
Sodomka was last seen by his wife around 9:30 a.m. Friday when he left home to take a prescription to the Navy Hospital to be filled. He was told the prescription would be ready by 4 p.m., but he did not return to get it. Sodomka was on numerous medications and had memory problems.
It is believed he became disoriented and was unable to find his way home. Foul play is not suspected at this time.
The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation into his death.
