The body of a Town of Darien man was found about 24 hours after he was reported missing.
State Police say foul play is not suspected in the death of 26-year-old Ryan C. Bergman.
His body was discovered by police yesterday afternoon in a wooded area just west of Route 77.

Southern Tier Republican Congressman Tom Reed recently opposed special treatment members of Congress receive under the Affordable Care Act.
