GOUVERNEUR -- A Gouverneur Central School graduate and United States Marine, who was reported missing this morning, was found dead following a car accident in North Carolina, according to several news outlets in the area.

An unofficial press release sent to NorthCountryNow.com said Marines Skyler D. Way and Nick Buscarnera were missing since Tuesday night.

According to WCTI12.com the same Marines were found dead in an overturned car in a canal off Catfish Lake Road in the Croatan National Forest.
