YWN regrets to inform you that the body of 62-year-old Steven Mayer Z”L was found over Shabbos.
Sources tell YWN that his body was found in a wooded area of Riverhead Long Island. His body is currently at the Suffolk County Medical Examiners Office, and Misaskim has been notified.
Thousands of volunteers from Hatzolah, Chaverim, Shomrim, and Misaskim had been searching Riverhead by land, air, and water in the hopes of finding Mr. Meyers, a Great Neck man who has been missing since October 4 – as was reported first by YWN.
Steven Mayer was supposed to be on his way to work as a metals trader in Huntington when he vanished. Family members say Mayer’s cell phone used reception from a tower in Riverhead at around 3 p.m. that day.
Further details will be posted as they become available to us.
Boruch Dayan Emmes…

Boruch Dayan Haemess. May he be a meilitz yashar for his dear family and klall Yisrael, and may they have much nechama in these trying times.
This is a terrible outcome. Is there any information on how death occurred?
Cause of death was hypothermia. It appears he was confused, got off the road, and wedged his car between two trees. He was confused in the woods, and died a few hours later.
The area he was found was within the area being searched. It was obviously not bashert for him to be found earlier.
