Darien death remains under investigation


The cause of death still needs to be determined of a 26-year-old man who was found dead in a wooded area in Genesee County.

A massive search team comprised of state police, sheriff's deputies and volunteer fire companies were able to locate Ryan Bergman Wednesday afternoon within a few miles of his Darien home. 

Authorities report Bergman had been reported missing after leaving his home Tuesday afternoon wearing  "clothing inadequate for the weather conditions." Christmas morning temperatures dipped into the single digits in the area.

Police say there was no indication of foul play in Bergman's death.
