John Frazier (Syracuse Police)

Syracuse Police say the body of a deceased man discovered in the area of the creek walk trailhead on Monday was a Syracuse man who had been reported missing last November.

Police say an autopsy by the medical examiner's officer identified the man as John C. Frazier, who was reported missing on November 18, 2017. Police said he was last seen in the area of the Destiny USA mall, not far from where his body was found Monday.

Police said it appears Frazier's death was the result of an accidental drowning.

The investigation into his death continues, police said.
