The body of an American teenager missing in Bermuda has been found by police.

Mark Dombroski, 19, of Delaware, was last seen at 1:15 a.m. Sunday at a bar called The Dog House, officials said. Investigators had asked for the public's help in finding the St. Joseph's University freshman.

 He and his family were in Bermuda for a rugby competition.

Authorities declined to provide details about how the teenager died or where his body was found. 

Surveillance cameras had shown him walking east after visiting with his teammates in the tavern. He hadn't been seen since. Alcohol was not believed to have played a role in his disappearance, police said. 

He was scheduled to return to the U.S. with his team on Sunday.

Dombroski's parents and two brothers had traveled with Mark to Bermuda. His mother, Lisa, spoke to reporters Monday and thanked local businesses and police for their efforts to find her son. Authorities have been with her family "shoulder-to-shoulder throughout this ordeal," she said.

"We love our son," she told reporters at a news conference. "We want him back."

His rugby team, competing in the Ariel Re Bermuda International 7's Tournament last week, posted a photo of the team Friday on social media.
