PLYMOUTH – Duy Truong of Waterbury has been identified as the 29-year-old missing man found dead in Hancock Brook Lake Monday evening.

Plymouth police Sgt. Randall Foster said Waterbury police contacted his department to search for the man after he was reported as not showing up for work Monday.

Because Plymouth police had logged the license plate of his car Sunday night when they were making regular patrols of the dam part of the lake, Waterbury police noticed the plate hit and later contacted Plymouth police to conduct the search, Foster said. Nothing suspicious made the man’s car left at the dam appear unusual when they first logged the plate on it, Foster said.

Search crews first spotted a fishing pole and kayak, which was confirmed to be the man’s through pictures from the man’s parents, Foster said. The parents also confirmed the man would go fishing in the area, Foster added.

The man was then found shortly after out in the still water by local swim and dive crews, Foster said.

The cause of death does not appear to be suspicious, Foster said.
