A 90-year-old Bronx man who went missing last month has been found dead, just a mile from his home, police said Saturday.

Ira Peterson was found lying ‘unconscious and unresponsive’ inside Soundview Park in the Bronx on Friday, cops said

He was last seen Dec. 14 leaving his nearby residence on Underhill Avenue in the Soundview section, police said.

Peterson had been missing since December 14, 2021.

The 5-foot-6, 170-pound Peterson wore dark-colored pants, black sneakers and a jacket at the time.

EMS declared Peterson dead at the scene on Friday, police said. No cause of death has been released, but the city medical examiner will perform an autopsy.
