BELDING, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say searchers have found the body of a 10-year-old western Michigan boy who disappeared after going fishing, triggering an extensive search by the FBI, state and local police.

The city of Belding posted on its Facebook page Monday afternoon that Devon Morrison's body was found in the Flat River.

Police say the Belding boy was last seen Saturday as he headed for the Flat River with a fishing pole.

Authorities searched the river Sunday with boats and helicopters.

The search area is about 25 miles northeast of Grand Rapids. Devon was a fifth-grader at Woodview Elementary School.

Belding police Chief Dale Nelson has said he considered the disappearance suspicious. There was no immediate word on the circumstances of Devon's death.
