A man has gone missing in the area after police say he told his son that he killed his mother just before the body of a dead woman was found in the man's car at Bear Mountain State Park

At about 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, 2019, Town of Poughkeepsie Police received a phone call from a man who stated that his father, George Grogan, had told him that he had killed his mother, Audrey Grogan.

Town of Poughkeepsie Police responded to the Grogan’s residence located at 6 Shamrock Circle in the Town of Poughkeepsie.

Officers checked the residence and were unable to locate anyone inside.

Information was obtained indicating that George Grogan may be a danger to himself, said Captain Michael O'Dowd of the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department.

An investigation was immediately launched to locate both George and Audrey Grogan.

On Saturday, Sept. 28 at approximately 7:30 p.m. an employee of Bear Mountain State Park located a vehicle that was believed to have been operated by George Grogan.

The employee contacted the New York State Park Police who responded with New York State Police and Westchester County Police and secured the vehicle.

Located inside the vehicle was the body of a deceased female. The identity of the female has not yet been confirmed.

George Grogan has still not been located.

Law enforcement agencies are still actively attempting to locate him. At this time there is no indication that there is any threat to the public.
