A Montgomery County man was found dead along the Schuylkill River Trail in eastern Berks County on Monday night, Nov. 4, after he was reported missing, state police at Reading said this morning.

No foul play is suspected in the death of James Simpson, 55, of Perkiomenville, troopers said.

His family reported him missing and said he was last known to be on the trail in the Union Township area. A search of that area was conducted and he was found in the 1200 block of East Main Street, which is Route 724, near the trail.

It was unclear when he went missing.

Police are continuing to investigate.
