Montgomery County police have identified the body found in a Bethesda stream Thursday night as a Sykesville man who was reported missing last week.

A Bethesda family found the body in the water in Booze Creek Stream Valley Park behind their house on Heatherhill Court. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore identified the body as Daniel Taylor Evans, 40, of Sykesville.

Evans was last seen at about 6 a.m. Aug. 3, when he left to go to his job in Rockville, the Carroll County Times reported Tuesday.

His car, a blue Mitsubishi Gallant, was found in Bethesda after it was involved in a hit-and-run crash that afternoon, according to the Times. The driver fled on foot and was not identified, according to a police report that didn’t specify if Evans was the driver or the person hit.

Evans was not at work on Aug. 4, the Times reported.

The medical examiner’s office had not determined the manner or cause of Evans’ death as of Friday afternoon.

Anyone with information about Evans’ death was asked to call police at 240-773-5070.

This story was updated at 10:55 a.m. on Aug. 14 to correct the name of the park.
