College rugby player goes missing in Bermuda during team trip

An American college student has been reported missing in Bermuda.

A police spokesman in Bermuda says authorities have found a body amid a search for a USA student who disappeared after a rugby tournament on the British island territory.

According to police, Dombroski was last seen by his family and friends just after midnight Sunday at a restaurant called The Dog House.

Dombroski was set to return to America along with the Philadelphia university's team on Sunday.

A 19-year-old St. Joseph's University student has gone missing in Bermuda during a team trip. Officials say he was wearing khaki trousers, a green t-shirt and black shoes. Late Monday afternoon, the body of the St. Joesph's University rugby player was found near a colonial fort right next to Bermuda police headquarters.

Howard also said foul play has not been ruled out. Police say he was found dead Monday afternoon in the Bermuda capital of Hamilton.

Our hearts and prayers are with Mark Dombroski and his family.

The St. Joseph's team finished competing on Saturday (finishing seventh while Kutztown won the cup) and socialized the rest of the evening. They are asking for the public's help in locating the missing teen, circulating a flyer with his photos.

The police say "there is concern for his well-being". He appeared to be using a cell phone device.

A marine unit scoured the harbor, police reviewed surveillance footage and Dombroski's family and other searchers tried retracing his steps but found no immediate sign of the slender 6-footer, a Saint Joseph's freshman from the Philadelphia suburb of Media. The team was scheduled to return to the U.S. later in the day.

Organisers of the tournament had offered a $US1,000 reward for information about Dombroski's whereabouts.
