Bryan Johnson's Mother to View Body Found in Long Island Sound

Investigators pulled the body of a black male from the Long Island Sound, according to lohud.

This morning, the mother of missing Ossining resident Bryan Johnson will see if a body found floating in the Long Island Sound is her son, according to lohud. Johnson's mother, Sheila Lilley, will view the body at Jacobi Medical Center this morning. Investigators pulled the body from the Long Island Sound, between Hart and City Island yesterday afternoon, according to the report.

Johnson, who had attended Penn State University, has been missing since Wednesday. His mother blamed the driver of the boat he was on for not paying attention, according to a report on lohud yesterday.

The 26-year-old Ossining man was in the water near City Island when the boat he had been riding in left him. Johnson was on the boat with a group of nine friends and acquaintances. 

Johnson's mother, Sheila Lilley, says she thinks that her son might have fallen into the water, or he was pushed, when the boat he was riding in quickly pulled away, according to yesterday's report.

The 26-year-old had his sights set on going to college to study hotel management. He was working as a manager at the DoubleTree Hotel in Tarrytown.

I just want to clarify something the autorities did not find the body floating in the water, I did I was out on my boat yesterday when I saw the body of a man floating in the water just outside of the marina where my boat is docked. I then called it in to the coast gaurd and they came to take the body out of the water. This was an amazingly sad thing for me to see. I just want to say to the Lilley family that I am really sorry for their loss and may God walk with them during this time. I am just glad that they can get some closure. God Bless You and RIP.

“Let not your heart be worried for where I am there shall he be also…” Although we may not understand God’s plan for us, trust in him and know that he will not forsake us or leave us alone just when we need him most of all. My heart aches for your family and you but trust in the fact that Bryan is comforted in our Father’s everlasting arms.
