BRIGHTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont state police say they have found a missing man dead in a brook in Island Pond, about a quarter of a mile from where he went missing on New Year’s Eve.

Police say the body of 23-year-old Quincy O'Gorman was found Thursday morning in the Lightning Brook during a search by local residents.

Authorities say an autopsy will be performed.

Police say he was driving a car stopped at about 11:45 p.m. on New Year’s Eve by a state trooper who said the vehicle was operating erratically and failed to stop at a stop sign. Four people in the car ran off, including O'Gorman. Police believe he crossed the brook.

Friends say he was out drinking with them that night.
