INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis Metropolitan Police say a body found in the White River belonged to a 15-year-old boy.

Sgt. Kendale Adams tells The Indianapolis Star there were no visible signs of injury on the body of Matthew Grover of Indianapolis. His body was found Friday night.

Authorities are awaiting the results of toxicology tests before releasing the cause and manner of the boy’s death.

The boy’s father, Kevin Grover, says his son had been missing since December. He tells WTHR-TV that Matthew ran away after an argument just before Christmas. He says nobody, including friends, had heard from Matthew since then.
