WILLIAMSBURG - The body of a Williamsburg businessman missing since Thursday was found Saturday in a gas station dumpster on Long Island.

Police say the body of 39-year-old Menachem Stark was found at a Getty gas station on Cuttermill Road in Great Neck.

It's a devastating end to a mysterious missing persons case. Police say surveillance cameras were rolling Thursday night as Stark was abducted on a Williamsburg street.

Police say businessman Stark left South Side Associates, located at 331 Rutledge St, on Thursday at around 11:30 p.m.

He was then allegedly approached by two suspects, who struggled with him and forced him into a light-colored 2006 or 2007 Dodge Caravan. The vehicle was last seen traveling eastbound on Broadway.

Police say it is believed that Stark was carrying a large amount of money at the time. They say he has ownership interests in 17 properties around Brooklyn, as well as one in Queens.

A funeral service was held late Saturday evening in Williamsburg as the local Jewish community came out in support of Stark's family.

Police say they are investigating Stark's death as a homicide.
