ROCKFORD, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities have located the body of an Alabama teenager who went missing during a Thanksgiving hunting trip.

Alabama Marine Police say searchers found the body of 16-year-old Gray Godwin in Lake Martin on Friday afternoon.

The 10th grader recently moved to the Birmingham suburb of Homewood from Montgomery. The youth reportedly went duck hunting on Thursday and didn't return.

State officers joined with authorities from Coosa and Tallapoosa counties in a search. Rescuers located the teen's canoe and gun before finding the body.

Friends held vigils for Godwin in both Montgomery and Homewood during the search.
