Missing Pomona Man Found Dead

The Pomona man who went missing on Friday March 14 was found dead in his Kia Optima on Sunday afternoon by hikers in Harriman State Park. According to Rockland County Legislator Aaron Wieder 50- year old Peretz Sontag was found in a ravine which he had apparently driven into off a hidden private road near the Lake Welch area. Wieder stated that Sontag’s family had asked volunteers continue to search the park, worried that he would not have survived. According to authorities no foul play is suspected. Volunteers and police had been searching for Sontag since he went missing, his last known position was found by receiving a signal from his phone near the State Park. Police had stated that a neighbor shared that Sontag was depressed and talking about self- harm before he left his home on Friday afternoon. Sontag was described by those who knew him as a kind and charitable man. The funeral for the husband and father of seven is planned for today and he will be buried in his former home of Israel.
