EAST LANSING — A body that is believed to be missing 18-year-old Brendan Santo has been found in the Red Cedar River, according to police. 

MSUPD Inspector Chris Rozman said police recovered a body from the river at about 12:30 p.m. Friday, about a mile and a half downriver from where Santo was last seen in October. 

Rozman said they believe the body is Santo’s, but they are not positive. Police still do not believe foul play is involved or that Santo intended to harm himself. 

Santo, a Grand Valley State University student from Rochester Hills, has been missing for about 12 weeks.

He was last seen leaving MSU’s Yakeley Hall on foot before midnight Oct. 29, while visiting friends in East Lansing for the MSU-University of Michigan football game.
