Dental records have confirmed that a body found in a New York City river is that of missing US actor Spalding Gray. Gray's body was pulled out of the East river on Sunday, the city's medical examiner's office said. The actor had been missing for nearly two months, since he disappeared from his home in early January. Gray, 62, appeared in films such as The Killing Fields and Beaches but was best known for the 1987 autobiographical movie Swimming to Cambodia.

No cause of death was given but Gray reportedly suffered from depression and had attempted suicide before. He also never fully recovered from a severe car accident in 2001 in Ireland which left him in poor health.
