Rochester's police chief made the announcement saying they are waiting for confirmation from the medical examiner.

The description and clothing found on the victim pulled from the river matches what Treyvan had on when the teen who has special needs went missing.

Mayor Lovely Warren also spoke speaking to a heartbroken family and city.

The chief says while a body has been found, no identification has been made.

However, this comes as a blow to a community where hundreds possibly a thousand people spent the weekend looking for Trevyan Rowe.

The 14-year-old was last seen getting off of his school bus Thursday morning and walking away from school.

Family members told us he was upset about losing his cell phone that morning.

His classmates joined the search.

The chief says this investigation isn't closed yet.

There are still a number of unanswered questions.

Meanwhile the mayor says there will be a vigil for Trevyan Monday night.

News10NBC will update the story with details as soon we get them.
