A written suicide note was found at Broadway video technician Jason Lindahl's home after he vanished from his Astoria apartment on Sunday.

A body discovered on the bank of the Hudson River has been identified on Thursday by NYPD as being Jason Lindahl, a Broadway video technician who ran projections for Ghost the Musical and Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, the New York Daily News reports

Lindahl had been missing since Sunday morning, when he disappeared after leaving his apartment in Astoria, Queens. Police say a handwritten suicide note was found at his home, and that Lindahl had sent several e-mails of "a suicidal nature" to friends in the days leading up to his disappearance.

Lindahl's body, fully clothed, had washed up north of the George Washington Bridge near W. 178th St. in Manhattan at 9:40 p.m. on Wednesday, NYPD says.

Lindahl's Twitter feed, in which he describes himself as "the dude sitting in the theater behind the wall of computer monitors," was last updated in January. In it he makes lighthearted jokes and described happy moments of domestic bliss.

"Got a Christmas Tree, now watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with the wife," Lindahl writes in one. "EXCELLENT."
