Police say they found the body of Ian Mathieson in a farm paddock in Balclutha, last night.

The 79-year-old left Clinton to drive home to Romahapa, south of Balclutha, last Wednesday night and was last seen in Clinton, apparently disoriented, asking where Romahapa was.

Police said the death was not being treated as suspicious.
