The body of Vance Nwankwo was found in a South Barrington pond Nov. 9.
The body of missing 25-year-old South Barrington resident Vance Nwankwo was found in a pond Friday afternoon, according to CBS Chicago.
A box alarm was pulled by Barrington Fire Department Friday morning. Divers with sonar equipment were called to the pond near the intersection of Penny and Bartlett Roads around 8 a.m. in Barrington Hills, according to the Current Incident Notification Services. The Daily Herald reports officials were searching for Nwankwo who went missing on Oct. 30. Calls to the Barrington Fire Department went unreturned today.
Nwankwo, a Barrington High School graduate who is described as semi-autistic, was last seen by a cab driver leaving Drink Nightclub in Schaumburg on the way to his South Barrington home Oct. 30. His keys, cell phone, and wallet were found in his home and one of his shoes was found by his mailbox.
It's unclear at this time if foul play is suspected. Barrington Patch will have updates on this story as they become available.
A vigil is scheduled for 9 p.m. at the scene where his body was found at Barlett and Penny Roads in South Barrington, according to CBS2 Chicago.
