Police have found the body of a man who was reported missing following the NFL game between the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins on Thursday night. The man was identified as a 26-year-old male from the Rochester, N.Y., area.

The Buffalo News reported that the man’s brother told law enforcement he was ejected from the Bills game for being too intoxicated and couldn’t be found afterward. Police used a “ping” to the man’s cellphone to find him, face down in Smoke’s Creek, behind Shadow Lane in Orchard Park, N.Y., just over a half-mile walk from the Bills stadium, according to Google. The man's name has not yet been released.

Police do not suspect foul play, but the Orchard Park police  said they are investigating the incident. The man was found early this morning, after helicopters circled the area.

The man was reported missing after failing to meet up with the rest of the group he attended the game with after the Bills won.

“Anytime you come to a game and you’re here to have a good time, and something tragic like this happens, it’s terrible,” Chief Andrew Benz, of the Orchard Park Police Department, told YNN. Benz added that the man was found in steep terrain.
