BROOKLYN - Police have confirmed that a missing man from Brooklyn has been found dead.

Police say the body of Basika Roberts was found Friday morning in the Hudson River next to Pier 59 in Manhattan.

Basika's family says the 29-year-old was last seen April 4. They say he was extremely upset after someone posing as a Microsoft employee took his computer information, but it is not clear if this was related to his disappearance.

The medical examiner will be working to determine the cause of death.
