VANCLEAVE, Miss. - Foul play was not involved in the death of a hunter found dead in a wooded area of Jackson County, officials said.

The 70-year-old man, whose name was not released by authorities, appeared to have suffered a heart attack, medical officials said.

The man was hunting in woods near Kito Lane in Jackson County when his body was found late Friday afternoon, Jackson County Coroner Vicki Broadus said.

The hunter was found by a group of friends and family, who had been hunting with him, about 50 yards from his tree stand, Broadus said.

"He just could not make it back to where the group was going to meet," Broadus said. "So when the group met, he wasn't there and they went back into the woods and started to look for him. They found him between where they were supposed to meet and the tree stand."

The hunter died from natural causes, Broadus said.
