Tragedies in Rockland and Westchester converged Tuesday morning when police identified a body found in the Hudson River in Stony Point as belonging to a missing Eastchester man.
The body of 60-year-old Frank Forgione was first spotted off the shore of Stony Point Monday just before noon. Authorities from Westchester and Rockland pulled the body from the water using marine, land and air units.
Forgione's body was in the Hudson River for no more than a day, Lt. Keith William with Stony Point Police told Patch Monday morning.
The body has yet to be officially identified by Forgione's family, but Williams said police investigations confirmed it was his body.
"We have enough information," Williams said.
Forgione's family has been notified.
Forgione's car, a black 1992 Lexus, was found on land near the body Monday afternoon.
An autopsy was carried out Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. by the Rockland County Medical Examiner; police are still determining the cause of death.
Forgione was last seen Thursday, Oct. 18 at 2 a.m. after leaving a dinner in Armonk. His wife told Patch Monday that her husband had no medical conditions that she knew of.
"To all our family, friends and new friends... as you know our beloved Frank has been found although not the way we had hoped," a user wrote Monday night. "On behalf of the Forgione Family, we can't express how much your help, your prayers and support has meant during these last few days. We truly appreciate all that has been done."
