CHICAGO — The body of a 16-year-old boy who jumped from a bridge into a river in suburban Chicago has been found.

In a news release, the Cook County Sheriff’s Department says that the body of Cameron Sanders of Villa Park was pulled from the Des Plaines River in Melrose Park on Thursday. He was found about 150 yards from the bridge he jumped from Saturday afternoon.

The teen has been the subject of an intense search ever since it was reported that he jumped from the Rainbow Bridge on Saturday. The sheriff’s department has said there is no sign of foul play.
