STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police say the body of a missing 24-year-old Stamford man has been found after he was reported missing last year.

Stamford Police say they found the body of Paulino Mendoza Sunday afternoon next to the boat docks at Cove Island Park.

Mendoza appears to have been submerged for a long period of time, which police say makes it difficult to determine his cause of death. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Mendoza was reported missing by his family on December 28 after not returning home for four days. Relatives said he was out with friends and was last seen Christmas Eve near Willowbrook and Cove roads.

Police say Mendoza immigrated to Stamford from his native country of Guatemala. He lived and worked in Stamford for several years.
