MIAMI (AP) - A 17-year-old Miami boy missing for more than a week has been found dead in a wooded area.

Miami Dade Police say family members have been searching for Jose Santos Amaya Guardado since June 28. His brother found a partially buried body in the woods last week.

The medical examiner determined the cause of death to be trauma and ruled it to be a homicide. Authorities said Tuesday that the body was Guardado, but did not indicate the manner of death. No other details were given, and police say they are looking for witnesses.
