A body found by a kayaker Monday evening in the Little Calumet River has been identified as that of a missing 12-year-old boy, officials said Tuesday morning.

Kyrin Carter, who had autism, was reported missing from Hammond, Indiana on May 15, according to an alert from Indiana State Police. He was last seen about 12:35 p.m. that day.

Officials decided to temporarily stop the flow of water into the river Friday to help their search. About 8:15 p.m. Monday, officers received a call from a volunteer kayaker who said he found a body about 300 feet from where Carter went missing.

A dive team was able to remove the body from the river, and the Lake County coroner’s office confirmed the body was that of the missing boy, officials said.

An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the cause of death.
