The College Point teacher who was reported missing over a week ago has been found dead in upstate New York.

Keith Johnson, 46, who teaches at P.S. 29 located at 125-10 23rd Ave. and resides in Kew Gardens, was last seen at the school in his 2006 gray Hyundai Elantra at 2:20 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. Law enforcement sources say that he was reported missing after he didn’t show up for work.

The NYPD reported on Saturday night, May 12, that Johnson’s body had been located in a wooded area near the town of Shandaken in Ulster County.

According to WCBS-TV, Johnson’s vehicle had been located in Schodack in Rensselaer County, about 50 miles northwest of where his body was located.

A neighbor of Johnson’s told WCBS-TV that he had seen the teacher leaving Kew Gardens on May 5, and Johnson had mentioned that he was going on a camping trip.

Police say that Johnson has no history of drugs or mental illness.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing, police said.
