Early Monday, it was announced that an American teen had vanished during his college rugby team's trip to Bermuda, reported NBC.

19-year-old Mark Dombroski was declared missing by Bermuda police after being last seen leaving a bar at around 1:15 a.m. ET on Sunday.

The Saint Joseph’s University's student had been due to fly back to the U.S. later in the day. On Monday, his mother pleaded for help from the local community in Bermuda to find him.

“We dearly love our son, we cherish our son,” Lisa Dombroski said.

Police launched an investigation into his disappearance on Sunday. Bermuda Police Service Chief Inspector Calvin Smith said there was no reason to suspect foul play at this stage.

Dombroski, a fullback on the Saint Joseph’s team, traveled from Philadelphia to the Caribbean for the 2018 Ariel Re Bermuda International 7’s tournament. Dombroski was a freshman at SJU.

On Monday afternoon, police in Bermuda announced that they had found Dombroski's body. They have not released a cause of death for the American teen.

They found his body when authorities and members of his family searched in a wooded area known as The Arboretum. It was near a sports center where Dombroski was competing as a member of the rugby team at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, reported AP.
