Body recovered from Hudson is the man missing for a week

POUGHKEEPSIE – The Dutchess County Medical Examiner’s Office Thursday positively identified the body pulled from the Hudson River on Tuesday as that of Paul Moschitta, 49, a Poughkeepsie city resident.

He had been missing since July 24 when he entered the river, went under and never resurfaced.

Several police agencies and the Coast Guard searched the waters for several days before they suspended it last Sunday.

This Tuesday, boaters called 911 to report they had spotted a body in the water. The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office launched its marine unit and recovered it.
