Former Bronx paramedic found dead in Colo.

A young FDNY paramedic who once worked in The Bronx has been found dead in Colorado.

Leonard Joyner, 31, went missing while on a mountain climbing trip. Officials say family members called police near Aspen after he didn't show up for work in New York last Saturday.

An aerial search Tuesday morning spotted Joyner's body on a mountain peak known as the Maroon Bells.

Joyner had worked at locations throughout the borough before being transferred to Manhattan.
