A Downers Grove man reported missing last month has been found dead inside a car after it was pulled from a retention pond in the west suburb.

About 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, officers responded to a retention pond near Interstate 355 and Ogden Avenue and found a 2009 Toyota Camry submerged in the water, Downers Grove police said.

A body found inside the sedan was identified as 34-year-old Abumere Eromon, who had been missing since Oct. 20 when he failed to return home from work, according to police.
