The death of a Glen Rock man who went missing nearly a year ago has been ruled a suicide.

The body of Thomas Augustyniak, 53, was found Saturday in a wooded area of Prettyboy Reservoir in northern Baltimore County.

On Wednesday, the Maryland Medical Examiner's Office said that Augustyniak hanged himself.

Augustyniak left his Glen Rock home on April 24 and hadn't been seen until a hiker discovered his body a few miles south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

When Augustyniak left his home, he took his cigarettes and lighter, but did not take his wallet, cellphone or keys with him, police have said.
