Officials say the man appears to have died in his motel room of natural causes and no autopsy was planned.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Police say the death of a 65-year-old man at a Portland hotel does not appear suspicious.

The man was found Sunday afternoon in a room at the Motel 6 on Riverside Street.

Lt. Gary Hutcheson says the state medical examiner's office was notified, but the man appears to have died in his motel room of natural causes and no autopsy was planned.

Police are trying to locate his next of kin.

Hutcheson tells The Portland Press Herald the man was a transient who was a guest at the motel but had not been living there on a long-term basis.

The body was taken to a local funeral home. His name was not made public.
