DOVER — A 23-year-old man reported missing Saturday was found dead in a wooded area early Wednesday morning, police said.

Lt. Brant Dolleman said Brycen Couture had last been seen at a residence on Broadway Sept. 27. His body was found not far from there, Dolleman said, in an area east of Broadway between New York and Ham streets.

Dolleman said police were called at 12:30 a.m. by residents in the area.

On Monday, police notified the public Couture was missing. Couture required consistent treatment for medical issues.

Dolleman said the state’s medical examiner will determine the cause of Couture’s death but it appears to have been a suicide based on evidence found at the scene.

"It’s just a tragic outcome for all involved. Our condolences go out to his family," Dolleman said. Police ask anyone with information to call police at 742-4646.
