      The body of a missing 16-year-old Fremont boy has been found.

      A group of volunteers found the body of the boy Sunday in a wooded area not far from where his car had previously been discovered on Friday.

      Fremont Deputy Chief Jeff Elliott says Brandon Kamphaus's body was discovered Sunday afternoon. The teenager had been last seen getting ready for school at his house Friday morning.

      Elliott says investigators don't believe foul play was involved in Kamphaus' death, but an autopsy will be performed to determine how he died.

      Kamphaus has diabetes and authorities believe that may have been a contributing factor in his death.

      Kamphaus' body was found about a mile away from where his car was found.
