There was no confirmation from authorities at the Sheriff’s Office as to if the body that was discovered was that of 57-year-old William Malloy of Pittsfield, who had been reported missing to Pittsfield Police on August 8th. He was last heard from on Sunday, August 2nd. Malloy failed to appear for a new job he was scheduled to begin on Monday, August 3rd, and did not show up for a visit with his family in upstate New York that was to have occurred on Thursday, August 6th.

Malloy’s car was subsequently located parked at a trail head off Gould Road in the town of Adams, near the Greylock Glenn, part of Mount Greylock State Reservation. On the evening of August 8th, State Police, Adams Police, and Department of Conservation and Recreation Park Rangers searched the area around the vehicle’s location but did not locate Mr. Malloy. A search the next day also failed to locate the missing man.
