Police say a man who was reported missing in the Medway area has died.
An appeal for help to find David Miller was made on Monday.
The 40-year-old had not been seen for five days and police were concerned for his welfare.
He was last seen wearing a hospital gown, normally had a walking stick and sometimes used a wheelchair, the appeal said.
But today a police spokesman confirmed that Mr Miller had died on Wednesday.
He said: "Please be aware that Kent Police is no longer appealing for information to locate a 40-year-old man from the Medway area who we issued an appeal to locate on August 19.
"Officers have received notification that the individual died at a local hospital on August 21 in circumstances that are not suspicious."
