GLOUCESTER (CBS) -A man who went out for a bike ride but never returned has been found dead in a pond.

Authorities spent much of the day searching got Jay Samoylenko, who drove to Gloucester Monday to go bike riding.

His truck apparently broke down on Route 128 between Exits 13 and 14.

His bike was still in the truck, but Samoylenko, who owns a horse farm with his wife in Bedford, was nowhere to be found.

Jay Samolyenko, who recently started taking medication, was 49 years old.

Crews searched for him Monday night, to no avail, and resumed their search on Tuesday.

How Samolyenko ended up in the pond remains a mystery.
