Body pulled from New England river, parents say it's their missing son
BOSTON (AP) - A Massachusetts man who went missing after attending a Boston Celtics game late last month has been found dead in the Charles River.
State police say they pulled the body of an adult male from the river just after 9 a.m. Sunday after a passer-by spotted it.
Police did not immediately confirm the body's identity, but the parents of 23-year-old Michael Kelleher in a statement said it was their son.
The Southborough man's parents said "Michael was claimed by the Charles River the night of his disappearance. At 8:00 this morning, the river gave him back to us."
His parents also thanked everyone who helped in the search.
Kelleher was last seen March 29 after attending a Celtics game with a friend.
The cause of death remains under investigation.
