SEATTLE (AP) - Authorities say the body of a 20-year-old Auburn man who was reported missing by his family was found in a submerged car in Star Lake, outside of Kent.

The Seattle Times reports the man attended a party near the lake Sept. 29 and left the gathering around 2 a.m. on Sept. 30, said King County sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ryan Abbott. His family reported him missing Oct. 1.

Abbott says detectives “think he made a wrong turn and he wasn’t familiar with the area.”

On Monday, Abbott says the man’s brother came across pieces of the man’s car near the boat launch at Star Lake.

After he called 911 police pulled the car out of the lake and found the body.

Abbott says no foul play is suspected.
