BALTIMORE - Maryland State Police have identified a man whose body was found in the Susquehanna River last week, but say they have not found a link to a missing North Carolina teen whose body was found nearby on the same day.
Police identified the man Tuesday as 53-year-old Darryl Harper of Richmond, Va. Police spokesman Greg Shipley says Harper was last seen on March 26 after a one-night stay at an East Penn, Pa., hospital, where he sought help with mental health issues.
Authorities have not yet determined a cause or manner of death for Harper or Phylicia Barnes, who was 16 when she disappeared Dec. 28 in Baltimore. The bodies of Harper and Barnes were found miles apart in the river last week.
