Police say the body of a business owner kidnapped off the street in Brooklyn Thursday has been discovered on Long Island. The body of 39-year old Menachem Stark was discovered in a dumpster at a Getty gas station in Great Neck. Authorities say Stark was abducted in front of his business on Rutledge Street in Williamsburg late Thursday night. He had just left his realty office during the snowstorm at about 11:30 p.m.

Surveillance images showed two suspects struggling with the victim and forcing him into a light-colored Dodge Caravan. The car then took off with Stark outside. It was last seen travelling eastbound on Broadway. Police say he may have been carrying a large amount of cash. When his family didn't hear from him, they notified a volunteer patrol in Brooklyn's Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, and then called the police around 2:30 a.m. Stark's family offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to his safe return.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at http://WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM and/or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
