A body matching the description of a man who disappeared in Dublin last year was found Wednesday, May 1, in Hilliard.

Hilliard police reported they were contacted at 6:30 p.m. May 1, by several young men who found a body in a wooded area south of Hayden Run Road and west of Wilcox Road while playing paint ball.

The Hilliard and Dublin police pieced together information and believe the body found is that of Siva Kumar Singhal-Gadwal, a man from India that was last seen in Dublin in December.

The cause of death and positive identification are pending further investigation of the body by the Franklin County Coroner’s office.
