AMES, Iowa – Divers on Tuesday found a body in a Iowa State University campus lake that matches the description of a student who vanished early Saturday morning after a night of drinking, police said. The body has not yet been identified.
The find happened in Lake LaVerne this afternoon after officials expanded their search for 19-year-old sophomore Abel Bolanos, said university police department Cmdr. Gene Deisinger.
"We have no information to date that foul play is involved," Deisinger told the ISU Web site. "However, we have not examined the body yet. It will be some time as we continue processing the scene."
Deisinger said officials believe Bolanos was last seen drinking at an off-campus party before disappearing Saturday between 4 and 4:30 a.m.
Deisinger said Bolanos left the party on foot and that he was very intoxicated. He left behind his keys and his car and no one was able to reach him on his cell phone.
Someone anonymously turned in Bolanos' credit card and debit card to the bank. Deisinger told FOX News that police have talked to the person who turned those items in, and learned the location and time in which they were found.
"We are currently following up on that," he said, adding that the cards were not used.
