Divers Find Body Of Missing Harvard Student In Portland Harbor

PORTLAND, Maine (CBS) – Investigators found the body of a missing Harvard Business School student in the harbor in Portland, Maine Tuesday morning.

Thirty-one-year-old Nathan Bihlmaier of Cambridge and two friends were at a bar in the city’s Old Port section late Saturday when Bihlmaier was kicked out.

His friends later went back to their hotel room but Bihlmaier never showed up.

He was reported missing Sunday morning.

On Tuesday, divers found Bihlmaier’s body just off of the Custom House Wharf, which is near the bar he had been at.

Police say they were quickly able to identify Bihlmaier’s remains based on the clothes he was wearing and the fact that he still had his wallet on him.

According to authorities, there are no signs of foul play, but nothing has been ruled out.

Bihlmaier was due to graduate Thursday from Harvard Business School, and police say his wife is pregnant with their first child.
