Body Found at Thacher Park May Be Man Missing in February

Indian Ladder Trail

A body was discovered over the weekend along the Indian Ladder Trail at Thacher State Park, and there are indications it could be that of a man reported missing in February.

Police say a hiker found the remains Saturday afternoon.

Items including an ID, wallet and backpack belonging to Bruce Decker were also located at the scene.

Decker was the subject of an all-out search after he was reported missing earlier this year. 

Police say the Albany County Medical Examiner’s Office will confirm the identification and cause of death. 

The trail has been re-opened.
