A NETFLIX engineer who disappeared last month after boarding an Uber has been found dead.
Yohanes Kidane, 22, went missing August 14 in San Jose, California.
His remains were found off the coast of Sausalito near the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office said on Wednesday.
That’s not far from where Kidane’s wallet and cell phone were seized last month.
Investigators believe he died by suicide.
The remains were identified Thursday when authorities began notifying Kidane’s family.
After an autopsy, authorities determined that Kidane died from a combination of blunt force injuries and drowning.
He was originally from Webster, New York, about 10 miles east of Rochester.
Kidane had recently graduated from Cornell University and moved to the Bay Area to start his job at Netflix.
“He was one of the top engineers in his class at Cornell,” said Kidane’s brother Yosief NBC’s Dateline.
The brothers talked for about an hour the day before Kidane disappeared.
