The body of a missing teenager was pulled Thursday from a Massachusetts reservoir.

Randolph Police confirm that the body pulled from Randolph Reservoir is that of 16-year-old Christopher Defreitas, a resident in town.

Defreitas had last been seen at his home, near the reservoir, around 8 p.m. Monday. Authorities tracked his phone to the area around the reservoir, where they found it, along with some of his clothes.

Crews spent much of the day Tuesday looking for more signs of Defreitas.

The boy left his home Monday night after a disagreement with his mother. He moved to the U.S. from Brazil about two years ago.

Foul play is not suspected.
