Missing NYU Student Found Dead Along Hudson River: Police

A 21-year-old New York University student who had been reported missing was found dead along the Hudson River, authorities say. 

Police say Patrick Healey, a mathematics major at the College of Arts and Science, was found along the river shortly after 11 a.m. Thursday, a day after he had been reported missing and four days after he was last seen. 

Healey, a National Honor Society member and cross-country runner, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

He had last been seen at his West 83rd Street home Sunday. 

The medical examiner's office will determine how he died. 

“Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and loved ones,” NYU spokesman John Beckman told DNAinfo. “The University is making counselors available to support those affected."
