Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District Assistant Superintendent Mike Biondi was found dead near a Nevada lake last week, the San Ramon Police Department has confirmed. The shocking discovery came eight days after Biondi went missing. He had last been seen on Sept. 22 in Livermore.

Authorities do not yet know the cause of death, but they don't suspect foul play. Biondi was 52 years old.

“He is gone from us, but never forgotten," LVJUSD Superintendent Kelly Bowers said in an internal email Thursday.

"I, like so many of you, am struggling to focus and cope today, and trying my brave best to support others even while processing my own intense range of feelings and emotions over the unexpected and devastating loss of our close friend and colleague, Mike Biondi," she wrote.
