MISSOURI CITY, Texas – The body of a missing teen was found at a Missouri City Park on Tuesday, according to authorities.

Officers responded to reports of a disturbance Saturday night at Buffalo Run Park, but did not find anything at the scene, authorities said.

The following day, the Missouri City Police Department was notified of a missing person report from the Houston Police Department.

Later Sunday, Missouri City officers searched the park for a second time, but were still unable to find anything connected to the disturbance, officials said.

On Tuesday, police searched the park again and found the body of a 16-year-old boy in brush near the lake, according to authorities.

The body was identified as the missing teen, Eduardo Eguia.
