NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The family of Hoboken resident Andrew Jarzyk confirmed late Tuesday night that a body pulled from the Hudson River earlier in the week was that of their missing loved one.

The body was spotted on Monday night near the ferry slips in back of the Hoboken train terminal. 

The family posted a message on the Facebook page dedicated to finding Jarzyk, 27, that read "a very tragic ending."

"We have been able to get through this because of love, faith, and outpouring support that we have received from everyone. Andrew would be so proud... Andrew’s life on this earth was indeed cut very short."

The state Regional Medical Examiner's Office in Newark conducted an autopsy through the forensic analysis of Jarzyk's teeth and several "personal identifiers," reported the Associated Press.

They say the body showed no signs of trauma that would have indicated foul play.

Jarzyk was last seen on surveillance video running along the Hudson River near Pier C Park on March 30 at about 2 a.m.
