23-Year-Old Man Reported Missing Found Dead

Authorities in Massachusetts say a body recovered in the Connecticut River last week is that of a 23-year-old Springfield man who had been reported missing in January.

Achim Bailey was last seen leaving Samuel's, a bar near the Basketball Hall of Fame, early in the morning on Sunday, Jan. 13. Springfield police say he was reported missing the following Monday.

The Hampden district attorney's office announced on Monday morning that a body that had been found in the Connecticut River on Friday has been identified as Bailey.

There were no signs of physical trauma to suggest foul play, according to the DA.

Springfield police said in January that Bailey had been spotted on multiple surveillance cameras before losing sight of near Memorial Bridge.

Around 3 a.m., a camera spotted a person believed to be Bailey walking on railroad tracks near the South End Bridge. His cellphone was pinged and had last registered in that area.
