A 49-year-old man was found dead inside his home Tuesday in Tyrone Township, while a 2-1/2-year old girl he had been caring for appeared to be in good health.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, they were dispatched to the home at 15175 Peach Ridge, between 18 and 19 Mile Roads in Tyrone Township, near Kent City, on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, at approximately 9:40 a.m. Family members called police to check on his well-being because they had not heard from him for several days. Upon arrival, police found the man deceased from unknown causes. They said there is no immediate indication of foul play.

Deputies also found the 2-½ year old girl inside the home. The victim was reportedly caring for his friend’s child.

Police said that the child is unharmed and was transported to Helen DeVos Childen’s Hospital for evaluation. She was turned over to Child Protective Services.

Detectives and the Medical Examiners’ Office are continuing their investigation into the cause of death.

Police have not yet released the name of the deceased, pending notification of relatives.
