Authorities searching for the body of a 12-year-old boy who went missing in the Mississippi River recovered a body in the water Wednesday morning.
The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office said the Water Patrol found the body of a juvenile male around 10:15 a.m., near the Lilydale boat launch.
This is a few miles downstream from St. Paul's Hidden Falls Regional Park, the location where 12-year-old Ashok Pradhan went missing around 7 p.m. Monday. Rescue teams have been searching the river since then to try to locate the boy.
Update: On Wednesday afternoon, the Ramsey County Medical Examiner confirmed the body recovered that morning was Pradhan.
