    Police said James Hannah's body was found around 11 a.m. Tuesday down a cliff on Quarry Road.

    The Anson County Sheriff's Office issued a Silver Alert for Hannah last week after his family said he left his cellphone at home.

    Hannah's niece said he often drives to deliver vegetables from his garden to family members. She said it was unusual for him to not return home.

    Investigators said they do not suspect foul play.
