MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Hennepin County medical examiner confirms a body recovered from the Mississippi River is that of a missing University of Minnesota student.

Authorities pulled the body of 20-year-old David Michael Miller, of St. Peter, from the river near the Ford Parkway Bridge in St. Paul just before 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The third-year bioscience major was last seen leaving a dormitory the night of May 10. Security video appeared to show him walking west, toward Interstate 35W, which crosses the river near the Minneapolis campus. He was reported missing after his roommates said he didn’t come home and then failed to show up for a final exam the next morning.

The medical examiner is still investigating the cause and manner of death.

Miller graduated from St. Peter High School in 2014.
