MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - A man reported missing Saturday was found dead in northwest Memphis after an apparent accident.

Melvin Taylor Jr., 62, was reported missing on Saturday, July 13, after he never came home from visiting his son in the Northaven area. Memphis police and Shelby County Sheriff's deputies found Taylor's body just after 1 a.m. on Monday, July 15, on N. 2nd St near Stiles Rd.

Investigators at the scene stated Taylor died from injuries that appeared consistent with an accident and he may have run off the road. Taylor's helmet was located, but the Moped he was last seen driving - a 2011 JONW - was not at the scene.

What led to the apparent accident remains under investigation.
