State Police had put out an advisory two years ago as they searched for Donlin, saying they wanted to check on the man’s welfare.  Authorities at the time said Donlin had connections to Binghamton, Utica and Syracuse.

There had been no follow-up information from authorities concerning the investigation or the discovery of Donlin’s body.
