BEAR MOUNTAIN STATE PARK, New York -- A Poughkeepsie man has been found dead a week after he went missing, and a body found in the man's vehicle has been identified as his wife.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that 59-year-old George Grogan was found dead in a wooded area near the Bear Mountain Bridge on Thursday.

His identity was confirmed by the Westchester County medical examiner's office on Friday.
