COHOCTON, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities in New York say hikers have found the body of a college student from Maryland who had been missing for more than a month.

State police say the remains have been identified as those of George Delany, 21, of Frederick, Md., and that no foul play is suspected.

Results from an autopsy are expected to be released later Monday.

The Rochester Institute of Technology junior was reported missing after he left his suburban Rochester apartment March 12 and never returned.

Troopers say two hikers found the body Sunday evening in a wooded area in the northern Steuben County town of Cohocton, 45 miles south of Rochester. His car had been found not far away in the neighboring town of Wayland on March 13.

      I’m sure Doug, since you were there, you’ll let us know which one it was. Your comments offer nothing to this news article or any other that you have posted to in the past. What do you even care what happened to this young man? Your comments are as mindless and senseless as any other person on here who pretents to care. My prayers and thoughts are with this young man and his family.

    Sheriff and doug you have no idea what you are talking about.. You are seeing a partial story and seem to have no past info. This student disappeared several weeks ago. There is a lot more info from previous stories. And Doug, it was raining on Sat not Sun and Rochester is 6 hours away. Their weather is very different. Please don’t make inappropriate comments as I know for a fact there is a grieving family out there. My prayers and thoughts go out to this family. At least there is now closure, unlike other stories of missing children/adults

    Yea,you guys have no idea what you are talking about all talk, He does not looke like a druggy and the weather had nothing to do wuth it I am sure, I think
    maybe someone tried to rob him for drug money and they did not want to identified

    I hope for the sake of the family the remains found is not of their son.
    They are in my prayers. God bless them.

  5. T says:

    They don’t suspect foul play? Are they saying (prematurely) that he committed suicide?????? I guess the family has been advised of the findings. Although it doesn’t bring back their loved one, the fact that he’s no longer missing should bring them some closure.

  6. Kathy Chesley says:

    Sheriff Willie, GET A FREAKIN life. You are so insensitive. I think you leave inappropriate comments because you lack attention. Sad thing is you have no idea how you’re perceived and we never met you. My prayers go out to his family and friends.

    Oh there is just no need for all the sick remarks made not only in this story but others reported. God have mercy on your miserable souls. Bet you all get up in the morning, look in the mirror and then slap yourself in the face ’cause you made it to another day!
    To the family of this young man, my thoughts and prayers are with you and for the soul of your son.

    1. Billiam says:

      Pigeon – while you may feel the remarks are insensitive, some of the responses are to the individual (or individuals) who are making the remarks. I do not condone anyone’s behavior on this post whereby the person wants to make insinuating remarks for a subject or story he or she knows NOTHING about. The remarks I make to individuals are in regards to the sick remarks you describe. Freedom of speech is guaranteed to us under the Constitution and I am glad you, as well as I, do wake up everyday. But to the individuals who comment needlessly with less than factual comments – those are where my comments are directed from and yes, I do pray for this individual and the family who has been grieving non-stop since this man was missing.

  8. Nora Rich says:

    I don’t know what is sadder, the death of the young man or the attempts at trolling in the comments

    Have some compassion for the family. They just received news that NO parent wants to hear. My prayers are with this family and friends.
