MERRIMACK – Five days after discovering the body of a man dead in a Merrimack pond, police have not released the identity of the man or the results of an autopsy to determine how he died.

Merrimack police were called to Bowers Pond near Pennichuck Brook around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday after two teenagers spotted the man’s body. State Marine Patrol officers helped remove the man’s body and later issued a statement saying it is believed it was that of a man reported missing to Nashua police a day earlier.

Nashua police issued an alert shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday asking residents for information about the whereabouts of Lucas Urena, a 78-year-old man who was reported missing shortly before 5 p.m.

Nashua police were listed as one of the responding agencies in the Marine Patrol’s statement.

Since the Marine Patrol’s statement issued last week, Merrimack police have released no other information about the investigation, including whether the body found Wednesday is that of Urena or whether they know what happened.

Police did not return calls seeking comment on Monday.

The Marine Patrol statement said an autopsy was to be conducted Thursday morning and that no foul play was suspected.

Bowers Pond is located off Al Paul Lane, a short access road located near the campus of Thomas More College of Liberal Arts. It is near Pennichuck Brook, which runs beneath the nearby F.E. Everett Turnpike. At the end of the road is property owned by the Nashua Fish & Game club.
