Police say 53-year-old Eddie Goodman of Northeast D.C. was reported missing on October 18, and on Saturday authorities confirmed he had died but was listed as a John Doe at Prince George's County Hospital Center.

Although he wasn't reported as missing until October 18, authorities say Goodman had been missing since October 9 and was the same day the hospital listed him as a John Doe. Police say they've been searching for Goodman ever since they receive the report of his disappearance.

"In the days and weeks that followed the missing persons report on October 18th, we contacted area hospitals in our search for Mr. Goodman. On Friday, November 17th, our homicide detectives were called to the hospital for assistance in making identification on a John Doe in the morgue at which time a fingerprint scan identified the male as Mr. Goodman. Our preliminary investigation indicates no foul play is suspected in Mr. Goodman's death. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family," Prince George's County police stated in a press release.
