UPDATE: ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - A grim discovery in Elyria Tuesday morning.

The body of a missing teenager was pulled from a Leo Bullocks pond around 10AM.

Police tell 19 Action News the body has been identified as 19-year-old Jordan Ault.

The Elyria Township teenager was last seen Friday, April 9th in Elyria. Family and friends had been actively looking for him.

A maintenance man planting flowers nearby was first to discover Ault's body.

"I noticed something in the water. I thought it was maybe some dead geese," said Ed Arbogast. "When I got out and got closer to it, I seen a head. I thought maybe it was a mannequin, but I wasn't sure so I went and got my boss. We took a better look and noticed it was a body."

The Lorain County Coroner will do an autopsy, but at this time, there is no apparent foul play.
