Missing Philadelphia student found dead in Bermuda: Police

iStock/Thinkstock(PHILADELPHIA) — A missing Pennsylvania student has been found dead in Bermuda, local police said in a press conference Monday.

Mark Dombroski, 19, was last seen early Sunday morning at a bar, a representative from Bermuda Police Services said.

Dombroski’s body was found “in a moat” at Fort Prospect in Devonshire, Bermuda, acting Assistant Commissioner of Police James Howard said.

“Foul play is not ruled out right now,” Howard, said. “The forensic officers are there. They’re assessing the scene, assessing the body.”

Howard would not confirm who found Dombroski’s body, but did say officers were on the scene. He also said the body was found close to police headquarters but not on police property.

Dombroski was on the island to compete with Saint Joseph’s University’s rugby team in a competition, the university confirmed to ABC News.

Prior to his disappearance, Dombroski was at the Dog House, a bar on Front Street in Devonshire, Howard said.

Officials used CCTV footage to track his movements after leaving the bar.

When asked if Dombroski got into an argument at the bar and refused taxi money from friends, Superintendent Sean Field-Lament said it was too early in the investigation to comment.

Dombroski’s mother, Lisa Dombroski, said at the press conference Monday that she had reviewed the security footage and it looked like her son “was not feeling well” from a shoulder injury he sustained in the rugby competition. She added that it looked like “he wanted to get going” and go back to the hotel.

Officials said the incident is still under investigation.
