LEDYARD, Conn. (WTNH) -- The body of a missing hiker was discovered in a pond near Foxwoods Casino, police said.
On Tuesday, New York resident Sijoon Park was reported missing by his wife who stated that she had not heard from him since just before 8 p.m. Sunday.
Park's wife told police that he had taken a bus to Foxwoods Casino from Flushing, NY, on Sunday for a one-day bus trip and never returned home.
The woman told police that her husband contacted her by text message Sunday in the late afternoon saying that he had left Foxwoods to go for a hike on Lantern Hill, in Ledyard, before taking the bus home.
That was the last communication she had with her husband.
Police said his wife then went to the bus station and found his vehicle at the bus terminal with a parking ticket. She then took a bus to Foxwoods and reported Park missing to State Police.
Police responded and conducted a K9 track at the trail. Officers used photos Park had sent his wife to identify a location.
A State Police Dive Team was also deployed and conducted a search of Lantern Hill pond.
According to police, while divers were searching the pond, they located a pair of shoes and cigarettes belonging to Park.
Through the use of side scan sonar, a body was located in the pond.
The body was later identified as that of missing hiker Sijoon Park.
