WARSAW, Ind. (WPTA21) - Crews searching for a 12-year-old boy who sparked a statewide Silver Alert discovered his body in a wooded area Friday afternoon.

Indiana State Police issued the Silver Alert Thursday afternoon after the boy went missing, and warned he may have a handgun.

Just after noon, crews found his body in a heavily wooded area of CR 350 E and CR 500 S in Warsaw.

At this point, police said foul play is not likely.

The Silver Alert has been canceled.
