FOLCROFT, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a body has been found amid the search for a missing boy last seen riding his bicycle in a Philadelphia suburb.

Local and FBI officials said the body was found Wednesday by a marine unit in Prospect Park in Delaware County, but they said the body hasn’t been positively identified and they are unable to say whether it might be the missing boy.

Officials had been searching for 11-year-old Laquan Lattimore of Folcroft, who hasn’t been heard from since around 3 p.m. Monday.

Laquan was known to ride his bicycle into southwest and west Philadelphia in the past, but Folcroft police say he’s never run away or gone missing before.

Prospect Park is about two miles away from Folcroft, which is about 8 miles southwest of downtown Philadelphia.
