Several police agencies helped in the search along with hundreds of volunteers, including his classmates. 

Investigators say side scan sonar picked up what appeared to be a body in the Genesee River near the Frederick Douglass-Susan B. Anthony Memorial Bridge just before 6 p.m. Sunday.

Rowe went missing Thursday. Officials say he got off the school bus and walked away, never showing up for class at School No. 12.

The investigation is far from over. The police chief says no foul play is suspected, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Whether anyone notified the family in a timely manner is being looked into as the school is launching an external, independent investigation to determine exactly what happened after Rowe got off the bus

Counseling will be available at School No. 12 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday.

According to AutismUp, there will be a vigil Monday night for Rowe at the Blue Cross Arena at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
