Police find body believed to be missing 14-year-old Trevyan Rowe

Rochester, N.Y. (GSL SHOW) — Police have confirmed they have found what are believed to be the remains of missing 14-year-old Trevyan Rowe. 

Police say the body was pulled from the Genesee River Sunday evening, about two miles from School Number 12, the last place Rowe was seen. They do not have a positive ID, but say the description and clothing are consistent with Rowe's. Rowe, who has autism, had been missing since Thursday morning. He was last seen getting off the school bus at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, but police say he never entered the school, and did not return home.  Hundreds of volunteers and officers searched for four days to find the missing teen. Rochester police say a number of calls lead them a particular section under the Frederick Douglas Susan B. Anthony bridge where people had said they saw Trevyan Rowe. That's where they sent a diver into the water and ultimately found a body. Police say those sightings of Trevyan near the water came before they put out the missing persons report. Police say there are city cameras in that area that point to the Genesee River but so far have not seen any images that captured Treyvan there. Police say they followed up with every tip and lead. They said this is not the outcome everyone hoped to have. Mayor Lovely Warren said "I am very, very sad by this news which is every parents worst fear. My heart and prayer go out to Trevyan's family and friends. Trevyan is a very special boy who was loved and he captured the hearts of our entire community. I want to thank the thousands of Rochester citizens who took to the streets in the snow and cold top look for Trevyan. Our city's heart clearly shined."
