Cornell University Police, working with the New York State Police, the Ithaca Police Department and the Ithaca Fire Department, recovered his body on Friday from Fall Creek, a short distance upstream from Ithaca Falls.

Cornell University Police has confirmed Narasipura’s identity. Police said the circumstances of Narasipura’s death are still under investigation, but no foul play is suspected. No other information has been released by the police at this stage.

Police had searched gorges and adjacent natural areas in Ithaca. Earlier, authorities had issued an advisory describing Narasipura as a dark-skinned male, 5-feet-9 inches tall.

He was last seen in the early morning of 17 May in Cornell's campus. Vice President for Student and Campus Life Ryan Lombardi expressed "profound sadness" at the death of Narasipura. He described Narasipura as an 'ambitious student' who was scheduled to graduate early this December.

"He was active on the Ultimate Frisbee team, enjoyed taking photos, and planned to continue at Cornell to pursue a Master of Engineering degree," Lombardi said in a statement.
