More information has been released after a man was found dead Tuesday in the Ramapo River near the Rockland/Bergen border

The man, whose name has not yet been made public, has been identified as a 51-year-old Sloatsburg resident by Ramapo Police. He was a lifelong Sloatsburg resident well-known in the community.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family," Rockland County Executive Ed Day said.
