BROOKSVILLE — Brooksville Police officers believe a body discovered Saturday is that of a 45-year-old New York man who disappeared last month, triggering a search.
Authorities say the body — apparently that of Brian Charles Kossman of East Moriches, N.Y. — was found about 4:45 p.m. Saturday in the northeast section of the Cascades, on the south side of Brooksville. Investigators located Kossman's driver's license at the scene, but are awaiting DNA results to confirm the identity.
The cause of death has not been determined.
Police had searched for Kossman, who was visiting his parents in the nearby Southern Hills Plantation Club, for several days after he left the house on foot Easter Sunday.
The search ended after police dogs failed to find Kossman in woods near Southern Hills.
