American actor Spalding Gray has been found dead in New York City's East River, two months after he went missing.

The 62-year-old writer and star of SWIMMING TO CAMBODIA disappeared from his New York home on 10 January (04).

His body was pulled from the river yesterday (8MAR04).

No cause of death has been given, but suicide is suspected - Gray suffered from depression after a car accident in Ireland in 2001 left him injured, and he made an attempt on his own life shortly after.

He is survived by his wife KATHLEEN RUSSO and three children.

Russo said after news of Gray's death, "We're hoping now that we have some closure. The family will begin to heal."

A memorial service will be held in a couple of months.
