LEVY COUNTY, Fla. - The father of a missing University of Florida student is helping investigators determine whether a body found in rural Levy County is that of his son.
Gainesville Police say they are assisting the Levy County Sheriff's Office after a body was found Friday in Cedar Key, but no further information has been released.
The Miami Herald reports (http://tinyurl.com/8ztfr6e) that Carlos Aguilar traveled from Miami to meet with investigators after being told the body matched the description of his son, 18-year-old Christian Aguilar.
Aguilar was last seen in Gainesville with his friend, 18-year-old Pedro Bravo, who has been charged with first-degree murder. Police say Bravo told them he beat Aguilar unconscious and left him in a parking lot.
Aguilar's family posted on Facebook that forensics won't confirm any information until Tuesday.
