Savoia, 55, was last seen visiting Marquee at 4 a.m. Thursday, according to a police report. He was also seen at several events in the city leading up to New York Fashion Week. He was reported missing since Friday.

A medical examiner will determine the cause of death. Police said that they don’t suspect any foul play at this time.
