Three-week search ends in tragedy

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A man missing since just after Christmas was found dead by relatives Wednesday night near where he was last reported seen.

Tony Fusco, 40 from Boardman, went missing December 27th after his brother dropped him off on Indianola Avenue near the old Woodside Hospital building in Youngstown to meet a friend.

Relatives had been searching for Fusco for three weeks before finding his body in an abandoned apartment complex last night across the street from the former hospital. The apartment complex was searched previously, but family members decided to search again.

Relatives tell 21 News that Fusco's death appears natural and the cold weather could have been a factor.

The Mahoning County Coroner's Office plans to release a statement later Thursday afternoon.
