The body of a missing North Hills personal injury lawyer was found Wednesday afternoon in the Monongahela River, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.

The body of Martin E. Lazzaro, 54, of McCandless, who had been reported missing by family members on Tuesday, was spotted at 3:55 p.m. by a Pittsburgh River Rescue boat crew near the Homestead Grays Bridge, the spokesman said.

There was no immediate sign of foul play, but a ruling on a cause and manner of death will not be made until an autopsy, which is scheduled Thursday, investigators said.

The Lazzaro Law Center is located on McKnight Road in Ross. According to a biography on the website, Lazzaro graduated with honors from the University of Pittsburgh School of Engineering before graduating from the Duquesne University School of Law.
