MILWAUKEE -

An autopsy is expected to determine the identity of a body pulled from the river in downtown Milwaukee not far from where a college student went missing on New Year's Day.

Milwaukee police say the body had been in the Milwaukee River for several months. Family and friends have posted flyers about the missing University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student in the downtown area and have searched for him. Twenty-four-year-old Nick Wilcox was last seen at a bar near where the body was found Thursday.

WTMJ radio reported autopsy results are expected later Friday.
