(KOIN) – The body of a Sherwood man and University of Portland executive reported missing six months ago was found last week in the Multnomah Falls area.

Forty-three-year-old Paul Disbury, former chief information officer for the university, was reported missing on Dec. 31, 2012. On New Year’s Day, his BMW was found abandoned in the Multnomah Falls parking lot.

Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office investigators discovered that he was possibly suicidal. At the time, sheriff’s office Search and Rescue canvassed the area around the falls, but was unable to locate him due to rough weather conditions.

Multiple searches were conducted over the next several months. On June 28, according to Sherwood police, his body was found and recovered.

The cause of death was not immediately confirmed.
