Police say the death of an Arundel man is suspicious and his wife, who suffers from Alzheimer's, is missing.

Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says the body of 63-year-old Matthew Coito was found in the kitchen of his home on Campground Road Wednesday afternoon. Relatives had gone to check on the couple after no communication from them since early last weekend.

Now, Troopers and York County Sheriff's Deputies are searching the wooded area near the home for Coito's wife, 65-year-old Sue Kim Coito. She's described as 5'2" tall, 130 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

There's no word on how Mr. Coito died, but police say they do not believe there's any danger to the public. His death is listed as suspicious but police are not calling it a homicide.
