After more than a week of volunteer search efforts, the body of missing University of Cincinnati student Brogan Dulle was found Monday night in a building next to his apartment.
Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell and Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco spoke to the media outside the building, located on the corner of East McMillan Street and Highland Avenue, and said the death appeared to be self-inflicted.
Blackwell said he was "pretty certain" that the body was that of Dulle, 21. A Dulle family spokeswoman released a statement later in the evening confirming that Brogan had been found deceased.
Sammarco said authorities are looking at all circumstances and aren't ruling anything out just yet.
"Right now we don't have any evidence of suspicious activity or anything to indicate that it may be a homicide," she said.
Dulle had been missing since May 18 when he left his apartment, telling his roommates he had misplaced his cell phone and was going back to track his path in an effort to find it. An extensive search campaign ensued on-foot and on social media.
Blackwell said search parties had extensively scanned the exterior of the building where the body was found and said the building had been secure. The body was discovered by the building's landlord.
"It would have been a difficult place for someone to discover him without actually being inside the building where he was found," Sammarco said.
Earlier Monday, Dulle's family said it will not be organizing any additional volunteer search efforts until further notice because an extensive search area has been covered multiple times.
A graduate of Turpin High School in Anderson Township, Dulle studied education at UC. He was a swim coach at MercyHealth Plex and Turpin Hills Swim Club.
"Brogan's family is heartbroken by the loss of their beloved son and brother," Lewis said in a statement. "The family is overwhelmingly grateful for the love, prayers, support (and) time given by the Cincinnati community."
Blackwell spoke to an emotional crowd that gathered near the scene and thanked them for their efforts in the search for Dulle.
Dulle's story attracted national media attention and a $25,000 reward, including $10,000 from UC President Santa Ono.
"Brogan. You brought so many gifts to those around you and to UC," Ono tweeted. "We will never forget you. May your heart and soul find peace and comfort."
Ono said Tuesday grief counselors are available at UC's Office of Counseling & Psychological Services by calling 513-556-0648 and 513-556-0034.
"Brogan was part of our university family and our hearts are heavy with the news of this devastating loss. On behalf of the University of Cincinnati, I want to express our deepest condolences to his parents, siblings, family and friends," Ono said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all who knew and loved him.
"I also want to extend my admiration and appreciation to the caring and dedicated corps of volunteers and law enforcement officials who never gave up hope. The outpouring of support and sympathy from the broader community has been truly humbling."
