SALEM — The body of a suicidal man reported missing in January was found yesterday in Salem Harbor.

Salem harbormasters, with assistance from the Salem police dive team, recovered the 36-year-old man’s body at 5:15 p.m., according to a police report.

The body was brought to shore at the Congress Street public dock, police said.

On Jan. 17, the man left a note for his family saying he planned to harm himself near Forest River Park on Salem Harbor. Police spent three days searching for the man, braving frigid temperatures and icy conditions.

Police did not release the man’s name last night.
