The teen was last seen on Sept. 15 while swimming in the river near Ramsey Park late in the afternoon, when the current proved too strong.

An autopsy is scheduled to determine a cause of death.

The body was found about a half-mile south of the County Road 101 bridge, police said.

Police say the body is believed to be Brothersofall’s but an upcoming autopsy will confirm the identity.
