The body of a Massachusetts man missing since November has been located in a wooded area of Hull.

Police said a boy walking his dog on Dellawanda Road on Sunday located the body of 65-year-old Michel Jean Benjamin in a densely wooded area.

Authorities said the State Medical Examiner's Office will determine Benjamin's exact cause of death, but an initial investigation shows it is not suspicious.

A Silver Alert had been issued on Nov. 4 after Benjamin, a Hull resident, was reported missing by his family.

Police had done an extensive search of the area near his home, but were unable to locate him at the time.
