Police said the body of 49-year-old Leo Couto was found Wednesday close to his home.
Couto’s family said they last saw him on June 26. The cause and manner of his death are under investigation.
Leo Couto, 49, went missing on June 26, from Boston, Mass. Leo is a retired corrections officer that took daily walks along Nashua Road. It is believed he was out on his walk at the time he went missing.
Couto’s children say it is completely out of character for him to not call or come home.
Investigators describe Couto as a white male, 5’4″ tall, 130 pounds, with gray hair and a fair complexion. He was last seen wearing a blue striped shirt, blue shorts, and sneakers.
