ATHENS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Athens Police have confirmed that a body found in the Hocking River is a Pickerington man who has been missing since March 13.

Athens Police Chief Tom Pyle said two boaters found the body on Monday afternoon. It was identified Tuesday as Samuel Wiater, a 21-year old man who told his girlfriend he was going to the river to kill himself.

Wiater's vehicle was found near the river, but a search of the river and surrounding area had turned up nothing.

Foul play is not suspected.
