Missing man found dead in western NY

DARIEN – State Troopers from Batavia responded Tuesday afternoon to a missing person complaint in the Town of Darien.  Ryan Bergman, 26, had left the residence on foot in clothing inadequate for the weather conditions.  Troopers assisted by Genesee County Sheriff's Deputies including a K-9 unit searched the surrounding area.  The search continued into the night with assistance from fire departments from the Towns of Alexander, Alden and Darien.  

On Christmas Day, the search resumed with the State Police Aviation Unit conducting an unsuccessful aerial search.  The ground search continued with the State Police, Genesse County Sheriffs and Fire Departments until at approximately 2:30pm, Mr. Bergman was located and pronounced deceased by a Genesee County coroner in a wooded area west of ST-77.

There is no appearance of foul play.  The cause of death is yet to be determined.
