DECATUR, Ill. — Police say a body found in a Decatur park has been identified as a 16-year-old boy missing since last weekend.

Dominic Walker’s body was recovered Thursday from a pond at Fairview Park. The cause is under investigation.

The teen was a sophomore at Mattoon High School. He was last seen last Saturday at his father’s home in Decatur. Adam Walker told the Herald & Review that his son’s phone and other common items were left behind.

Police used dogs from Cook County during the search and interviewed registered sex offenders in the area.
