Ardmore Police have identified the body found in a creek on 2nd Ave SE last Thursday as Larry Herren of Ardmore.
Police said, Herren, 69, walked out of Lakeland Manor nursing home on June 28 at 12:55 a.m. without checking out.  
Herren’s cause of death is still unknown, but police said there were no apparent signs of foul play.
Herren’s body has been sent to the medical examiner’s office where his cause of death is still being determined.
“We are saddened and shocked by Mr. Herren’s death and convey our sympathy and condolences to this family,” President and CEO of Lakeland Manor Gary Porter said in a statement.
According to Porter, Herren was admitted to the facility two days before his disappearance.
Porter said that  Lakeland Manor staff looked for Herren the night of his disappearance until 4 a.m., and when they were unable to find him they notified Ardmore Police. Porter said the facility is not a lock down facility and residents live there voluntarily.
Ardmore Police received a call reporting a body found in a creek  the 600 block of 2nd Ave. SE Thursday, after neighborhood kids found the body while playing in the creek.
Herren’s body was found half a mile from Lakeland Manor.
A Silver Alert was issued by APD on June 30 after Herren did not return to Lakeland.
APD Capt. Keith Ingle said police didn’t issue the Silver Alert until two days later because Herren was free to come and go from the facility as he pleased.
