STUYVESANT — The body of a man who was reported missing Dec. 5 has been found in Stuyvesant, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.
The remains of William Amato, 29, of Elizaville, were found on the Dutch Hollow Farm in Stuyvesant, Columbia County Sheriff David P. Barlett said.
Amato was not seen since the evening of Dec. 4, and police launched a search the following day. A couple of days ago Amato’s vehicle was found on the farm, and his body was located late in the afternoon of Thursday, Dec. 12.
Amato’s next of kin was notified. An autopsy will be scheduled at Ellis Hospital in Schenectady, Bartlett said.
“At this time, it does not appear that there is any foul play with the death of Mr. Amato,” according to the statement from Bartlett’s office. “However, the investigation is continuing and Sheriff’s Office investigators are awaiting the autopsy results.”
