Body Of North Rose-Wolcott Teacher Found

The body of North Rose-Wolcott teacher Frederick Dunn was found late Saturday morning.

Authorities say family members, who were at the scene, identified the body after a search crew found him along the shoreline around 10:15am.

The search for the missing teacher had picked up again around 7:30 using ground crews from New York State Park Rangers and several members from local fire departments.

Wayne County Undersheriff Rick House says crews searched land and water at the end of Dutch Street near Lake Ontario. Less than three hours later, a crew found Dunn's body lying on the shoreline about 500 yards east of the street.

"There's no visible signs of trauma or any signs of foul play," said House.

Dunn had been missing since Wednesday. He was last seen at the town grocery store Bob's Big M. Police say the 48-year old left the North Rose-Wolcott school, where he taught music, telling the students he needed to run an errand. His car was later found in the area where authorities were searching.

"The investigation is continuing into the circumstances surrounding his death," said House.

The undersheriff says Dunn's body has been taken to Newark Wayne Community Hospital for an autopsy.

His former students say the play he was working on the day of his disappearance will go on as scheduled, in his honor, next Saturday.
