A veteran who was reported missing weeks ago was found dead at the Banner University Medical Center on Sunday. 

According to the Phoenix Police Department, 34-year-old Guido Feruglio was found on hospital property dead.

"Indications are he took his life," Officer James Holmes with Phoenix police said. 

Feruglio was reported missing by his family on December 15th.

"I want to thank Jeff Kagan and George Pinchuk for all their help. They organized today's search to find my brother in-law. I want to thank everyone who helped," said Feruglio's brother-in-law, Kelvin Panama.

His family spoke to ABC15 on December 25th and said Fergulio was proud to serve his country after serving two tours in Afghanistan. 

But it was when he returned home from his second tour that his wife, Veronica Fergulio, noticed a change.

"He didn't come back the same," she said. Veronica says her husband suffered from PTSD.

"He never wanted to say something, he was always fine," she said. "Any nightmares he saw or lived, he kept to himself."

It was on December 14th that Fergulio said something strange to his wife right before he left the family's house.

"I'm sorry, I hurt you and I'm sorry I did this to you," she said he told her.

He left his family behind, including his 3-year-old son.
