ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 16-year-old is facing a first-degree murder charge after authorities found a body they suspect is a teenager who had been missing since Nov. 13.

KTUU-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2fXcfy8) remains found Friday near Palmer were sent to the medical examiner for identification and to determine the cause of death.

The body is believed to be that of 16-year-old David Grunwald.

Troopers say the suspect is being charged as an adult.

Alaska State Troopers are asking residents and business owners in the Palmer and Wasilla area to check any surveillance camera video they have from 6 p.m. Nov. 13 through Nov. 14 at 11 a.m. for footage of Grunwald or his Ford Bronco with the license plate JFM910.

A vigil was held for Grunwald on Saturday in Palmer.
