(ABC 6 NEWS) -- The Dodge County Sheriff's Office says a body has been found in the search for missing 15-year-old Noah Graddy. Authorities, however, have not confirmed the body is that of Graddy.

The body was found between Kasson and Byron Thursday morning. The search was being done by members of the Kasson Police Department, Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office, Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office. We're told the body was found in deep snow.

The Medical Examiner’s office has been called and will assist investigators in determining the cause of death. Positive identity of the subject will be made by the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Noah Graddy was last seen at a friend's home in Byron in January. He hadn't been heard from since. Authorities had called his disappearance suspicious.

ABC 6 News did reach out to Graddy's family this afternoon, but family members did not want to comment.

We have a crew talking with the Dodge County Sheriff and we'll have any new developments on ABC 6 News at 5:00 and 6:00.
