(WHAS11) -- Authorities believe the northeastern Kentucky teen who went missing while hunting with his father fell to his death.

Police found the body of 15-year-old Rickey Dean Hamilton Jr. Tuesday night in a quarry after a three day search in Fleming County.

According to police the teen went deer hunting with his father Saturday afternoon and the two split up with a plan to meet later at a specific area, but the teen never arrived.

Authorities believe he fell from a cliff. Nearly 600 people attended a vigil for the teen Tuesday night.
