The body of a man found floating on the Manhattan side of the Hudson River in New York has been identified as that of a fashion designer who was reported missing last week.

Police said 55-year-old Michele Savoia's body was discovered off Chelsea Piers yesterday afternoon, not far from where he lived on board his boat. The cause of death has not yet been determined.

It was not clear how Savoia ended up in the river, but police do not suspect foul play. He was last seen alive leaving a nearby nightclub early on Thursday morning.

Savoia reportedly designed hand-crafted suits for celebrities and had a boutique on the Lower East Side.
