With sadness, I write to inform you that the Middlebury Police Department, assisted by the Vermont State Police, tonight has recovered the body they believe to be Nicholas Garza.
I have shared my deepest sympathies with Nick’s mother Natalie, and let her know that the thoughts and prayers of the entire Middlebury community are with her, the Garza family, and with Nick’s many friends.
I want to express thanks to the police and to the search teams who have worked so tirelessly over the last few months.
Details regarding a gathering in remembrance of Nick will follow soon.
May the unity that comes from the terrible sadness we all feel at this time be a source of comfort and strength for the Garza family.
