A Severn man who did not return home Friday night was found dead in a nearby stream Saturday morning, Anne Arundel County police said.

Peter Anthony Dembrowicz, 30, of the 100-block of Gambrills Road, was found in the nearby Severn Run stream, police said.

"We think he might have had a medical condition" that contributed, or that he might have gotten stuck trying to cross the stream, said Lt. Michael Brothers, a police spokesman.

Police said there is no indication of foul play or any suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

Dembrowicz, left his home for a walk around 10 p.m. Friday for a nightly walk but did not return, police said. At 7:45 a.m. Saturday, his mother reported him missing.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is investigating.
