KENT COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A missing Michigan doctor charged with sex crimes was found dead.

When Dr. Steven Scranton went missing, officials believed he was suicidal and went missing with a rifle.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office said Dr. Scranton was charged in January with criminal sexual conduct involving some of his patients. He bonded out, and was awaiting trail.

On Wednesday, April 25 at 10:10 p.m., investigators said Scranton left his home in Cannon Township with a rifle and no one could locate him.

Deputies did not believe he intended to harm anyone else.

On Saturday, April 28 at 4:03 p.m. the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office received a tip about the location of his vehicle.

Deputies investigated the area and found Scranton’s dead body a short distance from his vehicle.

The sheriff’s office said it does not suspect foul play at this time.
