A young Loyola University graduate was found dead in the harbor Thursday after being missing for days. Sunday, friends and family came together to remember Michael Bagley.
 
"He was such an amazing human being and he will be dearly missed and he'll forever be in my heart," said Sara Ghaviadelasgari, a good friend of Bagley's.
 
Bagley was 23.
 
"Michael was one of my good friends throughout college and he supported me through all my dark times and he had such an impact on not only me, but the whole Loyola community," said Ghaviadelasgari.
 
 
"He just really touched me as such a positive energy guy. Just the way he made you feel he was such a good listener and he'd see you make you feel like you were such a great friend," said Emilee Palsen.
 
Police say the Loyola University graduate was leaving a bar in the popular Fells Point area near the 1700 block of Thames street late November 20th. Those who knew him are still in shock.
 
"He was just a friend to everybody at Loyola and everybody knew him and it's just so devastating because he was honestly one of the most genuine people I think I've ever met," said Palsen.
 
Bagley was well liked.
 
"It's amazing to me that he's had an impact on so many people here," Ghaviadelasgari said.
 
He'd been missing for almost 10 days before police found him. It's a void many will ever be able to fill. 
 
 
"He was the most spritely individual I'd ever met just never had a bad bone in his body, always had nice things to say," Daniel Medico, a close friend of Bagley's.
 
"Michael I miss you I always pictured us being the old people doing crazy things all around the world and I don't know how I'm going to do that without you," said Ghaviadelasgari.
 
Police said there were no obvious signs of foul play when Bagley was found. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.
