RIVER EDGE - A body found Thursday in River Edge is believed to be that of a man reported missing Sunday.
Police say that 26-year-old Keith O'Connell was reported missing by his mother.
A worker found the body around noon halfway between the parking lot of the River Edge Train Station and the Hackensack River. This is about a block away from where O’Connell’s mother lives.
"It does not appear that he was in the river or the water had any involvement or touched him or anything like that,” says Lt. Michael Fowler.
Police say that they don’t suspect foul play.
The medical examiner’s office will perform an autopsy and are waiting for official confirmation that the body found was O’Connell’s.
