FISHERS, Ind. (AP) -- Authorities say they've found the body of a missing Purdue University freshman inside his car after it was pulled from a suburban Indianapolis retention pond.

Fishers Fire Department spokesman Ron Lipps confirmed the car and body found Wednesday were those of 19-year-old Patrick Trainor of Indianapolis. He had been missing since early Sunday after leaving a home near Geist Reservoir northeast of Indianapolis.

Family members, friends and authorities had been searching the reservoir, retention ponds and other parts of the area since Monday after he failed to return home or arrive at the West Lafayette campus for the resumption of classes after spring break.
