NYPD divers on Wednesday found the body of a 22-year-old Jamaica man who had gone missing in Manhattan on Monday afternoon.

Police at the 103rd Precinct said Aronno Haque of Parsons Boulevard was found in Central Park Lake, which is located near Central Park West and the 70s.

Aronno had last been seen at about 3:30 p.m. on Dec. 30 near Union Square Park, located between East 17th and East 14th streets, more than 50 blocks south of where he was found on Wednesday morning.

Police said on Tuesday the course of their investigation of Haque as a missing person led them to the vicinity of Central Park Lake, where unspecified items of his personal property were found. An initial search of the 18-acre lake by divers that afternoon and evening turned up nothing.

He was found after the dive team resumed their search Wednesday in daylight. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities have determined that he killed himself.
