The male body found by hunters in the Connecticut River in Charlestown, New Hampshire, on Saturday has been identified as that of a missing school bus driver from Sharon.

New Hampshire State Police on Sunday evening identified the body as that of Randy Koloski, 68, who had been reported missing early last week.

“Foul play is not suspected at this time and it is believed that Koloski was likely carried southbound along the Connecticut River by its current,” New Hampshire State Police said in a news release.

Koloski was a bus driver with Student Transportation of Vermont and was reported missing on Monday after he did not show up for work at the bus company’s depot on Route 14 in West Hartford.

Hartford Police, in conjunction with Vermont State Police and New England K-9, searched for Koloski along the White River on Friday.

An autopsy is to be conducted on Monday.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to contact the Hartford Police Department at (802)-295-9425 or Det. Sgt. Michael McLaughlin with New Hampshire State Police at 603-419-0130.
