COLUMBUS, Ohio – Media outlets are reporting a body has been found near Ohio State while police are providing no updates on the search for a football player missing since Wednesday.
WBNS-TV, WCMH-TV and The Columbus Dispatch reported Sunday that police confirm a body has been found. But both police and Ohio State Coach Urban Meyer say they have no updates on the search for defensive lineman Kosta Karageorge (KOH'-stah KAHR'-ah-jorj).
A police report says Karageorge's mother told authorities he has had concussions and spells of confusion. She said he texted a message Wednesday citing the concussions and saying he was sorry if he was "an embarrassment."
The Buckeyes defeated Michigan on Saturday, 42-28. Defensive lineman Michael Bennett said afterward that Karageorge missed practices that teammates started getting nervous Thursday.
