Andrew G. Hedlund, 22, of Darien, was found dead in a wooded part of Waveny Park, New Canaan, at about 6 p.m. Tuesday night. New Canaan police are investigating the death.

"We have reason to believe it is a suicide," said New Canaan Police Sgt. Carol Ogrinc. No weapon was found at the scene, and police said there is no evidence of foul play.

Hedlund was reported missing Tuesday morning after his father found Hedlund's car at the park. Police said Hedlund's father returned home and then reported his son missing to Darien Police.

Hedlund had last been seen at his home on Dorchester Road at about 3 p.m. Monday.

At the time he was reported missing, Hedlund was classified as being a possible danger to himself, as police had knowledge of "some psychological issues," according to Ogrinc.

A graduate of Darien High School, Hedlund later attended Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Fla., majoring in environmental studies.
