    Police Chief Joseph Petruch said Sunday evening authorities were called to a retention pond near U.S. 30 and Colorado Street where the body was discovered.

    "We don't suspect foul play. The body had probably been there for four to six weeks," he said.
    Identified only as male at this point.

    Vargas Perez, 29, was last seen in Merrillville on Feb. 7, 2016. His family says he seems to have simply vanished leaving his phone and passport behind at his home. He was last seen walking outside his cousin's house in Merrillville where he was staying for a few days.

    Vargas Perez lived in Munster with this wife and 6-year-old daughter.

    Vargas lived in Mexico for a number of years, but his family doubts he could have returned there without his passport.

    "Police work with missing man's family in death inquiry"
    "Vargas, who has a wife and young daughter, had not been in the right state of mind in the days leading up to his disappearance, his family said."
    "Rice said he could not confirm the man found Sunday is Vargas. Identification of the body by the Lake County coroner’s office is pending DNA testing results, he said."

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."
