Cops found a man's remains inside a garbage bag near a Queens beach boardwalk on Monday morning.
Officers said they responded to Beach 40th Street between Edgemere Avenue and the boardwalk to a call from a Queens woman about her missing adult son.
The woman had tracked down the son's cell phone, police said, which she found in a separate bag along with some personal possessions.
NYPD found the second bag containing the body nearby when they responded the 911 call at around 9:50 a.m. Inside they found the body of a man thought to be around 30 years old.
EMS pronounced him dead at the scene.
The man's identity has not been released, and the the cause of death is still pending the medical examiner's report.
