The body of an Easton man who was reported missing in February was found Thursday afternoon.

The man’s family identified him to NBC 10 News as 35-year-old Gregory Glavin. He was last seen leaving his friend’s North Attleborough home on Feb. 17 on a maroon moped.

Glavin’s loved ones reported him missing a few days later, sparking a massive police search.

“I kept contacting him and there was no answer,” Helen Glavin, who is Glavin’s mother, told NBC 10 News. “It just went straight to voicemail and I knew something happened.”

After nearly two months, the Glavin family contacted Mark 9, which is a volunteer search and rescue team.

“They were searching as if it was their own kid,” Helen said. “If it wasn’t for them, Greg would still be out there.”

Police were contacted and they confirmed that Glavin’s body, along with his moped, were located under a camouflage tarp in the woods off Bay Road near Wright Farm on Thursday around 1:30 p.m.

“They found him very, very quickly -- in the same area where police said they did their search,” Helen said.

Security footage taken at a gas station shows Glavin entering the area in February, but video never shows him driving out.

“He texted to someone, one of his friends, that morning, Saturday morning, that someone was bothering him and he hope they didn’t know where he lived,” Helen said.

She wonders if he drove in the woods to hide, but then got disoriented.

“Someone could’ve followed him in and done harm to him,” Helen said. “Either way, I think it’s one of those two scenarios.”

Police, who said they have not yet officially identified the body, said foul play is not suspected.

The incident remains under investigation.
