EAGLE, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities have confirmed that a body pulled from the Eagle River in western Colorado is that of a 3-year-old boy who had been missing for nearly a month.

Hundreds of volunteers and first responders looked for the boy with help from drones, rescue dogs and helicopters. His body was found just east of Dotsero on Friday.

The Eagle County coroner’s office said Wednesday that Sebastian accidentally drowned. No other information was released.
