MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) - Police in Moorhead say investigators are combing the area where the body of a North Dakota State University student was found.

Lt. Tory Jacobson with the Moorhead Police Department says officers are using daylight to ensure they find any items that belonged to 18-year-old Thomas Bearson.

Bearson’s remains were found Tuesday outside a recreational vehicle store in south Moorhead. He was last seen at a party Saturday in Fargo.

Jacobson says any of Bearson’s belongings found at the scene could help investigators determine why and how the student got to the area.

Police on Wednesday declined to give more details on the investigation, including the condition of Bearson’s body when it was found.

Bearson’s cause of death hasn’t been determined. The medical examiner in Ramsey County is conducting an autopsy. The results are not expected to be public for weeks.
