Authorities say that a missing Columbus man was found dead in a lake at Ceraland earlier this week.

Bartholomew County Coroner Clayton Nolting says that the body found floating in the lake has been identified as 22-year-old Timothy C. Duckworth. Duckworth had been missing since May 4th after disappearing at the park. His body was discovered 10 days later floating in the Ceraland lake.

Nolting said that a forensic autopsy was performed Thursday in Columbus, and the Bartholomew County Death Investigation Team continues to investigate the death.

A Silver Alert was in effect for Duckworth until Thursday afternoon, when identification of his body was announced.
