Missing Ossining Man's Body Identified by Mother

Bryan Johnson's body was identified by his mother today.

This morning, the mother of missing Ossining resident Bryan Johnson identified her son's body, according to lohud. Johnson's body was found floating in the Long Island Sound. His mother, Sheila Lilley, positively identified the body today. Investigators pulled the body from the Long Island Sound, between Hart and City Island yesterday afternoon.

Bryan's mother is planning on making arrangements for his memorial service after his body is released to a funeral home. 

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.
