Authorities have confirmed that the body found Sunday in the Red River is that of 19-year-old Delano Gaking, Grand Forks police said.

Detective Mike Flannery said a medical examiner determined Tuesday that Gaking drowned and that no foul play is suspected in his death.

Searchers began looking for Gaking on April 13 when a motorist crossing the Kennedy Bridge, which links Grand Forks and East Grand Forks, reported seeing a person outside the railing. When the driver looked back, the person was gone.

Police later found items belonging to Gaking on the bridge which, at the time, stood about 25 to 30 feet above the water.

Boat crews discovered Gaking's body floating near a Grand Forks boat landing just below Riverside Dam, roughly a mile downstream from the bridge.
