STAMFORD - The body of a missing man was found washed up on the shore of Stamford Harbor off Shippan Point.

Officials say the body of 26-year-old Jorge Simon, of Stamford, was discovered on a private beach by Rogers Road just before 1 p.m. Monday. They say it was a landscaper who found the body near the lawn he was working on and notified a caretaker of the home, who called police.

Simon was reported missing on Feb. 16 after a night out with friends. He was last seen near Stillwater Avenue and Finney Lane. Simon was a Guatemalan native.

Police say it appeared the body had been in the water for some time. Investigators say there are no signs of trauma.

Police say they are treating the situation as suspicious. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

Authorities are asking anyone with information on how Simon got from Stillwater Avenue to the water to contact Stamford police.
