A body recovered from a New York City creek has been identified by his family as a missing Goldman Sachs employee.

John Castic, was last seen Saturday at about 2.30 am leaving a "Zeds Dead" concert at The Brooklyn Mirage in East Williamsburg.

"They have found his body and confirmed it's him," his shattered father, Jeffrey Castic, told Fox News Digital. "It appears to have been death by misadventure. His wallet and phone were found on him."

The body was pulled from the waters of Newtown Creek - a waterway around a half mile from the Brooklyn Mirage. The section of the creek where the grim find was made is called English Kills.

The Goldman Sachs executive had told his friends he was going to catch an Uber ride home to his flat in Manhattan's Lower East Side, but he never made it home.

His cause of death remains unclear at this time.

He worked as a senior analyst at Goldman Sachs and is originally from Chicago. He graduated from DePaul University and started working for Goldman Sachs in August 2022, according to his LinkedIn profile.

"He was so smart but, in the end, he did something dumb, and it cost him," Jeffrey Castic told Fox News Digital. "We think he might have been impaired, we do not know, and it was just a lapse of judgment."

It remains uncertain whether he indeed called for an Uber or opted for a different route. John was reported missing Sunday, according to the NYPD.
