BOSTON (AP) " A Massachusetts man who vanished after attending a Boston Celtics game more than two weeks ago has been found dead in a river.

State police say they pulled the body from the Charles River on Sunday morning after a passer-by spotted it. Police on Monday confirmed it was that of 23-year-old Michael Kelleher, of Southborough.

Kelleher's parents said in a statement: "Michael was claimed by the Charles River the night of his disappearance. At 8:00 this morning, the river gave him back to us."

His parents also thanked everyone who helped in the search.
