A body found Saturday on the bank of the Mahoning River in Struthers is that of Jonathan Rosas, 28, of Puerto Rico.

Mahoning County Deputy Coroner Joseph Ohr made the identification Monday after an autopsy.

Two fishermen found Rosas on the south bank of the river near Bob Cene Way about 6 p.m. Saturday, Struthers police reported.

Dr. Ohr said the cause and manner of Rosas’ death is still under investigation. He said there was no sign of obvious trauma on the remains, which were badly decomposed and lying face-down under a fallen tree.

A friend of Rosas’ reported him missing to Youngstown police Dec. 21.

The friend last saw him around 5:30 p.m. Dec. 20. Rosas had borrowed the friend’s van, which was found parked on Himrod Avenue.

Rosas’ friend told police Rosas had come from Puerto Rico for a week’s visit. Police said he also had a Youngstown address on Truesdale Avenue.
