UPDATE: Police say Calabrese died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound (source)
Officials say that they have located the body of missing NYPD Detective Joe Calabrese in water off of Brooklyn.
Calabrese, 57, had last been seen between midnight and two a.m. ET at Maimonides Medical Center. His car was then later found abandoned at Plumb Beach at 3 a.m., and his body was found nearby. Dozens of officers scoured the Sheepshead Bay area with K-9 dogs, boats and helicopters in the search.
As many as 100 police vehicles responded to the scene. Calabrese’s wife had recently had a minor medical procedure and he had been visiting her the night he went missing. He joined the NYPD in 1982 and rose to detective first grade, a much-coveted title.
His cause of death is unknown.
